Ashton Turner: News

Hailing from Western Australia, Ashton Turner was considered one of the brightest young prospects in Australian cricket. A talented middle-order batsman who can be handy with his off-spin, Turner came into prominence during the 2012 U-19 World Cup, where he replaced the injured Ashton Agar as Australia's first-choice spinner. He made his first-class debut for the touring Australians against Sussex in 2013. When the senior players of the squad were rested, Turner was presented with a chance to represent Australia at the international level in the 2017 T20I series against Sri Lanka. His sustained success at the domestic level and BBL did not go unnoticed as he was handed his ODI debut in 2019 against India. In the second match of the series, Turner produced an innings that helped Australia chase down a total of 359 runs in Mohali. Presently the captain of the Perth Scorchers, Turner hasn't been able to tie down a place for himself in the international setup. He was part of the Australian ODI team that won the ODI series in the West Indies in 2021.
