Mickey Edwards (24) is an exciting quick bowler playing for New South Wales and the Sydney Sixers in Australia’s State competitions and Big Bash League, respectively. Standing neigh-on-2-meters tall (198cm), the towering quick has played a dozen representative matches for NSW/Sixers, since his List A debut in September 2017.

Holder of a British Passport, Edwards first rose to fame filling in as a sub fielder during the fifth day of the third test between Australia and Pakistan at the SCG. Due to his tall figure and long blonde hair, the crowd immediately embraced him as a new cult hero and began to cheer every time he fielded the ball. Edwards immediately became a popular hit on social media for his cameo.

He had, though, already made an impression in the NSW ranks, earning a rookie contract in 2015. However, due to multiple stress fractures, he didn’t bowl a ball throughout the 2015/16 season. Nevertheless, he returned the following season, impressing for Sydney Grade side Manly (where he’s taken 147 wickets at 23.95 at the point of writing) and subsequently earned another rookie for the 2017/18 season. He made his State and BBL debut’s during this season but has yet to cement his spot in the respective star-studded squads.

That said, he remains in the mix and is now looking to head abroad in 2019 to continue his push towards regular State cricket. He has prior UK experience, playing for Finchley and Middlesex 2nd XI in 2013, but is keen to secure an English league club for the 2019 season. As a NSW State contracted player, Edwards is only available till the start of August, but given his quality and British Passport status, he will be a sought after commodity for the UK 2019 season.
