Alex Ross is an explosive batter playing for Sydney Thunder in Australia’s Big Bash League. Known as the “sweepologist”, Ross is a white-ball sensation, who has featured in 70 BBL matches, initially for the Adelaide Strikers (2014/15-15/16), and Brisbane Heat (2016/17-18/19), before his move to the Thunder in 2019/20.

Ross originally shot to prominence during his breakout 2015/16 season for the South Australia Redbacks, winning the prestigious Bradman award (Young Cricketer of the Year), joining past winners Brett Lee, David Warner, and Shane Watson (read more here - https://bit.ly/3Hdv2y3).

He would then earn Caribbean Premier League selection, playing for the Jamaica Tallawahs in 2016. During the same year, he represented Australia A.

Roll on October 2017, and Ross would go on to break the Australian record for most runs in a List A over, when smoking Nathan Lyon for 32, hitting four sixes and two fours, on his way to his maiden JLT One-Day Cup century (110 from 85 balls), against a NSW attack also featuring Mitchell Starc, and Sean Abbott.

Ross would continue his run-spree in the BBL, averaging 34.66 (2018/19), 37.20 (2019/20), 21 (2020/21), and 39.50 (2021/22). He would also smash a double century (209), and two further tons (101, 114) in grade cricket for Kensington Cricket Club in SACA Premier Cricket in 2020/21, then two further centuries (109, 112) last summer.

After a long hiatus, Ross returned to Northern shores in 2022, having previously excelled in both the Netherlands (Excelsior ’20), and England (Leyland). During the latter season (2014), he smoked 4 centuries amongst his 1,208 runs at 52.52 (786 runs at 60.46 in the Northern Premier Cricket League alone). Last summer, he was a starring figure for Reigate Priory in the Surrey Championship, hitting 705 runs at 54.23 in league/cup cricket.
