Nic Maddinson won his first Steve Waugh Medal as the NSW Blues Player of the Year in 2015/16.

The dynamic left-hander was in outstanding touch at the start of the season, scoring 380 runs at 63.33 in the Matador BBQs One Day Cup with a strike rate of 100.52. This included centuries against the Cricket Australia XI and Tasmania. 

He was the only NSW player to take part in all 10 Sheffield Shield matches last season. He produced some crucial knocks on this competition, including 112 against Queensland at the SCG. 

Maddinson also showed new determination last summer, batting for more than three hours with a broken finger to help secure a vital draw against Western Australia in Christchurch. 

It has been six years since a then 18-year-old Maddinson became the youngest NSW player to score a century on debut when he played his first Sheffield Shield match against South Australia at the Adelaide Oval.

The 24-year-old is now seen as one of the leaders in the NSW squad and captained the Blues in six Shield matches following an injury to Moises Henriques. 

Maddinson peeled off a century for Australia A against India A in Mackay in August, 2016, and he will be hopeful of capitalising on that strong start to the summer.
