Bio

Having started his first-class career with NSW, Peter Forrest’s career took off when he moved to Queensland in 2011 after getting limited opportunities at the Blues.

He hit three hundreds in his first six games for the Bulls, which earned him selection in Australia’s ODI side and put him on the cusp of a Test debut. 

He hit 66 in his first ODI and scored a century in just his fourth innings, becoming the first Australian to make three 50-plus scores in his first four innings. 

He toured West Indies as a reserve batsman later that year, but a dip in form saw him drop off the radar of national selectors. 

Forrest is also a talented rugby league player, with his father Ian having been a first grade player at Parramatta and Cronulla.
