Bio

Wicketkeeper-batsman Sam Harper has impressed as captain of Victoria’s underage teams. He is an attacking and exciting batsman who hits the ball a long way, typified in his century against Papua New Guinea during a high-performance camp in Brisbane.

Harper has been identified as one of the brightest talents in the country and has represented Australia Under-19s against England.

Harper broke into the Sheffield Shield squad and wasted no time making an impact with a record nine dismissals on debut, underlining his ability at first-class level.
