Matt Renshaw is a young Australian cricketer who was born on March 28, 1996. The left-handed batsman is well-known for his sophisticated defensive strategies.
Renshaw has represented Marylebone Cricket Club’s Young Cricketers, Queensland’s National Performance Squad, and the Brisbane Heat, and is a well-known figure in Australian domestic cricket.
His family moved from Yorkshire to New Zealand when he was seven years old, and then to Australia when he was eleven. Renshaw was a member of the Australian Under-19 squad that toured Sri Lanka in October 2014, and on his one-day debut in Colombo, he showed his talent with an innings of 73.
Matt was Queensland’s top run scorer in the Sheffield Shield in the 2015-16 season. He batted 738 times for an average of 43.41, including a huge 170 in tough conditions. As a result, he became the youngest Queensland batsman to score a century in the Shield’s history.
Renshaw was called to Australia’s test squad at the age of 20, and he made his international debut against South Africa in 2016.
As Australia chased a small target of 127 runs, he scored 10 runs in the first innings and stayed unbeaten on 34 in the second.
Rise to Glory
In his second Test in 2017, he scored an impressive 71 against Pakistan at the Gabba in seaming conditions. He batted on the first day of the match at the SCG, scoring his maiden Test century before being dismissed for 184 runs. At the time, it was the highest test score ever achieved by an Australian player of his generation.
In the February-March 2017 international tour of India, he once again demonstrated his worth, scoring half-centuries in each of the series’ first two tests.
