Bio

At 18 years and 206 days, Kurtis Patterson became the youngest batsman to score a century in Sheffield Shield history when he smashed 157 for the Blues against Western Australia in 2011.

Having hit his 16th boundary to reach the milestone, the left-hander smashed his last 55 runs off just 25 balls in a dramatic debut at the SCG.

 Patterson’s career, not surprisingly, has failed to continue on the same path since then, as he’s struggled to hold down a regular spot in a star-studded NSW side.

 Having failed to make much of an impression in one-day cricket or for Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League, Patterson scored three half-centuries in five matches on his return to the Shield side towards the end of the 2013-14 season, including an innings of 52 in the final against Western Australia.
