Bio

It was a meteoric rise for Jason Sangha, who in 2015-16 became the youngest player in 90 years to represent NSW in a Second XI or Toyota Futures League match.

A resident of Newcastle and student at Hunter Sports High School, Sangha started the 2015-16 season playing for the NSW Under-15 Schoolboys team. From there, he was selected in the Cricket Australia XI to play at the Under-17 National Championships.

Some impressive form in that tournament saw him play for the Cricket Australia XI at the Under-19 Championships, and before he knew it he had been selected in the Australian preliminary squad for the 2016 Under-19 World Cup.

Australia eventually withdrew from that tournament because for security reasons, however, Sangha was still able to represent his country in Youth ODIs against Pakistan and New Zealand in Dubai.

Sangha joins an exclusive group of players who have received a NSW contract while still at school. The only other players to have achieved this were Jake Doran and Josh Hazlewood.
