Bio

Wes Agar secured a rookie contract with South Australia for the 2016-17 season after strong performances in the Under-19 National Championships.

The younger brother of Ashton took 10 wickets for the tournament, including a haul of 5/37 against Tasmania, and was selected in Australia’s U19 ICC World Cup squad before the team pulled out of the tournament in Bangladesh.

Agar moved to SA before the 2015-16 season, hooking up with grade side Adelaide Uni.

Originally from Melbourne, the right-arm paceman previously played for Monash Tigers in Victorian Premier Cricket.

He has now moved back to Victoria where he will be hoping to get a regular place in their side.
