After a terrific BBL01 where he was one of the competition’s most consistent batsmen, Nic Maddinson announced himself as a young batsmen that rivals should watch out for. The 20-year-old has already represented Australia at Junior and Australia A level and his calmness and consistency with the bat will be highly valued by the Sixers this season.
Born in Nowra, a quiet country town on the New South Wales South Coast, Nic Maddinson is the eldest of five children. He loves coming from a big family and spent much of his childhood playing cricket or football with his brothers. Never a big fan of school, Nic used sport as an excuse to get out of study. Luckily it paid off, as continues his rise in the cricketing world.
