Bio

Ryan Carters played his junior cricket in the ACT before taking up a Rookie contract with Victoria where he made his First Class debut. 

In 2013/14 he came to NSW where he made an immediate impact, scoring three centuries and four half-centuries as an opener in the Blues’ Sheffield Shield winning team. 

Since then Carters has become a study in versatility. 

For the last two summers he’s played the role of the ‘finisher’ in the NSW Limited Overs teams, while the elevation of Peter Nevill to the Australian team has seen him take the gloves for the Blues’ Shield team while batting at number six. 

The 2015/16 season saw Carters in-and-out of the NSW side for the Matador BBQs One Day Cup. 

He also opened the batting for a Cricket Australia XI in a tour match against New Zealand. He scored 208 runs in that game, combining with Aaron Finch to pile on 503 runs for the first wicket at Blacktown International Sportspark. 

In Shield cricket the plucky right-hander scored 434 runs at 31.00 with a top score of 77. 

Off the pitch, Carters has started his charity Batting for Change after visiting Nepal and seeing the poverty lack of access to education. Batting for Change leverages the big-hitting nature of the Big Bash League with the opportunity to financially benefit from every six hit.
