CricX is the brainchild of our Managing Director, Steven Hirst. He founded it in 2004 to give cricket players in his native New Zealand the opportunity to play league cricket in the UK.
From this inspired but modest start, the agency has grown significantly, first establishing itself as a leading UK cricket agency, and then expanding its operations to become leaders in the global cricket market.
Record Breaking Placements
Since the start of our journey, we have placed well over 4,000 cricketers, to include no less than 600 first-class, 100 international and 10 national captains. We have placed some of the biggest names in the game from yesteryear to date, including current Test skippers Faf du Plessis and Tim Paine.
We continue to set the standard for placements with nearly 500 cricketers placed in 2019 to date.
Whilst the majority of placements have been in the UK, Europe and Australasia, we have expanded our operations to cover territories including Africa, South East Asia and America.
What Makes Us Different?
No other agency can rival the sheer number of cricketers we have placed, with a global tally of over 4,000 to date. While this figure continues to grow on a daily basis, it is also important to note that it comprises an incredible roll call of over 100 international cricketers. A few of these can be seen above.
Through our extensive networks in the UK and overseas, we have an unmatched access to cricketers on a worldwide basis. We’ve been able to do this by demonstrating our close, personal commitment to individuals, clubs and the game itself.
We follow a strict code of ethics and the rules governing agents set out by the ECB, providing our clients with the reassurance that they will only receive the best possible advice.
CricX also has suitable professional indemnity insurance to ensure maximum security for all parties.
