An attacking batsman who is not afraid to go over the top, Nic Maddinson was a surprise inclusion in Australia's Test squad against South Africa in 2016-17. A highly rated player at junior levels, Maddinson emerged in 2010-11 when at 18 the became the youngest man to score a century on first-class debut for New South Wales - a record that was broken the next summer by Kurtis Patterson. Always a dangerous player in the shorter formats, he was called up for his T20 international debut against India in 2013, and scored 34 off 16 balls in his first game. Maddinson had a productive Australia A tour of the British Isles in 2013, blasting a first-class 181 against Gloucestershire. In 2015-16, he captained New South Wales in the Sheffield Shield for the first time, and remained a player of significant interest to the national selectors. Although Maddinson started out as an opener, he spent more time in the middle order as his career progressed.
