Profile

Despite being born in England, Sam Whiteman is proud to call Australia home. The 21 year old made the move from Yorkshire when he was still very young, and it is clear that the change of scenery has worked.

Whiteman made his debut for the Warriors against the NSW Blues in mid-2012, where he made a steady 31. It was a composed knock, but critics questioned whether he had the attacking impetus to handle 50 over cricket. Indeed, his current strike rate is just over 60, which suggests he needs to up the ante.

That being said, it only took him two more matches before he crafted a valuable 74 against the Redbacks.

Despite being a quality wicket-keeper, Whiteman was forced to play as a specialist batsman for most of 2012. In his first Bupa Sheffield Shield game, Whiteman struggled at the top of the innings, falling to Clint McKay twice (both caught by Cameron White).

Later that month, Whiteman showed he had the temperament needed to open the batting, when he fell just short of a maiden century against the Tigers.

After Tom Triffitt struggled during the KFC T20 Big Bash League, Whiteman was handed the gloves for the rest of the 2012/13 season.

It didn’t take long for Whiteman to shine, with the incumbent keeper scoring 41 against the Blues in the Sheffield Shield, before equalling his career best 74 in the subsequent Ryobi Cup clash.

Another half-century, this time against Queensland, suggests Whiteman is more than capable of handling the Australian first-class circuit. His work behind the stumps has been exemplary, with Whiteman snaring four catches in back to back games against the Bulls and the Tigers.
