Cooper (21) is a strong all-round prospect who has progressed through the Waikato Valley and Northern Districts ranks. He has featured for both the Minor and Major Association’s respective age-groups sides, to include National Under-18 and Under-19 tournaments.

Cooper was selected in the New Zealand Under-19 squad for the World Cup held in Dubai (February 2014), but an ankle injury prevented his inclusion within the touring party.

Whilst pursuing cricket, he is also undertaking a Bachelor of Management Studies at Waikato University. A Sir Edmund Hillary Scholar, Cooper plans to major in Economics and Psychology in a view to entering the business world, hopefully after a long career in professional cricket.
