Bio

A product of NSW's North Coastal Zone, Taree-born Nick Larkin moved to Sydney after finishing High School. 

The opening batsman joined the Sydney University Cricket Club and after several successful years in First Grade, he was selected to make his first-class debut at the start of the 2014-15 season against Victoria at the MCG. 

In just his second match, a day-night fixture at the Adelaide Oval, Larkin made 130 to help set up a win for the NSW Blues. 

Larkin's first-class appearances since his debut have been limited, however, he has kept his name in the selectors' minds by dominating at the Second XI level, and in 2015-16 he was named the Toyota Futures League Player of the Year. 

Larkin is also eligible to represent Ireland and he has two list-A appearances to his name for the country of his ancestors against Sri Lanka A. 

While considered primarily a long form player, he is starting to expand his game. This is paying dividends and last summer he played a match for the Sydney Sixers.
