Fergus Lellman is an exceptional prospect coming through the Northern Districts’ ranks in New Zealand.

A gifted batsman, dynamic fielder, and skillful medium-pacer, Lellman has been a stand-out at age-group level, culminating with New Zealand Under-19 inclusion.

He made his debut against the touring Bangladeshi’s in September 2019 and ended their 4 ODI series with 269 runs at 89.66, including a century (116*) and 2 fifties (76 and 56), all with a strike rate nudging a run-a-ball.

A few months later, he was a consistent performer at the ICC Under-19 World Cup, producing notable scores in each of his 5 matches. In his 12 ODI matches for New Zealand, Lellman has racked up 431 runs at 43.10.

Alongside his national exploits, Lellman has been progressing towards full State honours for the Northern Knights.

He is a Northern Districts ‘A’ regular and is a stand-out for Otumoetai Cadets and Bay of Plenty – Lellman’s Premier Club and Minor Association sides, where he fills all-rounder roles.

Often bowling first-change, Lellman took 15 wickets at 11.60 in Premier One-Day cricket in 2019/20 and boasts best bowling figures of 3-31 (12) v Counties-Manukau in Hawke Cup cricket for the Bay.

Lellman seems destined for professional cricket and it only seems a matter of time before receives that Knights call. Whether that’ll come this season, or in the future, remains to be seen.

For now, though, Lellman will continue to progress his game alongside undertaking studies at Victoria University of Wellington (Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics).

However, Lellman will put his studies on hold in 2021 to pursue his dream of playing cricket in England next summer. He has recently signed to play for newly merged club, Downham Stow, for their Norfolk Alliance campaign.

Holder of a UK Ancestry Visa, Lellman is looking to showcase his undoubted skills in league cricket and potentially pick up a few County 2s games throughout the summer.

There are no overseas stats available for this player.
