Beckham Wheeler-Greenall is an exciting prospect coming through the New Zealand ranks, who has played two Super Smash matches for the Otago Volts (2021, 2022).

Hailing from King’s Old Boys’ in Dunedin, whose alumni include the McCullum brothers, Beckham announced himself on the world stage early in 2020, courtesy of his exploits in the ICC Under-19 World Cup.

Heading into the tournament, former Otago Volt’s player, Bradley Scott, labeled him as “one to watch in future”. He didn’t disappoint.

He produced two stand-out performances. In a must-win game against Sri Lanka, Beckham took a stunning grab, before producing an energy-sapping 80 off 111 balls to help the side to victory and into the quarter-finals.

In the semi-final v Bangladesh, Beckham came to the crease with his team struggling at 74-4 in the 26th over. He proceeded to hit the opposition around the park to finish unbeaten 75 off 83 balls to give New Zealand some hope. Bangladesh proved too strong, winning by 6 wickets.

Beckham finished the tournament with 186 runs at an average of 62 and caught the eye of several observers and commentators alike.

Cric-buzz.com picked him in their team of the tournament and well-respected South African commentator Alan Watkins labeled Beckham as one of his five players of the tournament to look out for in the future.

An explosive middle-order batter, his confident approach, and hard-hitting ability was clearly evident at the U19 World Cup in South Africa. However, he’s long been regarded as a player of international potential, due to his schoolboy and Premier club exploits.

For King’s, he holds the record for the only cricketer to score a hundred and take a hattrick in the same match. He also belted 102 from 52 runs to win a prestigious T20 competition for King’s.

Playing for Premier club side, Taieri, he has been a key performer - finishing second on the Dunedin Premier Competition run charts in 2018/19, and 2019/20, before recent tallies of 375 runs at 25 and 15 wickets at 25.33 (2020/21), and 509 runs at 29.94 and 24 wickets at 11.71 (2021/22).

Whilst known predominantly for his batting, Beckham is a useful off-spin bowler, who was a regular bowler for the New Zealand Under-19s, and dominates Premier cricket.

An incredibly talented cricketer, Beckham looks destined for big things in the game. He has already featured for Otago in the Super Smash and it's envisaged he'll progress into other formats moving forward.

In 2021, he headed to the UK to play his maiden stint for Hampstead in the Middlesex County League campaign. He produced glimpses of his ability and averaged early 30s over the summer. Much will be expected of the talented kiwi moving forward. Keep your eyes peeled!
