Isaac Higgins is an exciting talent currently on a Rookie Contract with South Australia. A prolific opening batter who bowls left-arm spin, Higgins has represented the State through the age groups, played for Australia at the 2022 U19 World Cup, and is pushing for Redbacks’ inclusion throughout the 2022/23 summer.

Son of former Redbacks batter, Ben Higgins, Isaac has emerged as one of Australia’s hottest batting prospects in recent years. He dominated the State carnivals – topping the U17 National Championships (425 runs at 85), before churning out 337 runs at the U19 Championships (Dec 19), including a stunning 112 against the Northern Territory.

During the same 2019/20 season, he would break into the Glenelg Cricket Club 1st Grade team (168 runs at 18.67), and would then cement his spot the following season (283 runs at 28.30). Roll on the 2021/22 season, and Higgins would star in SACA Premier Cricket hitting 3 centuries amongst 410 runs at 68.33.

His exploits were rewarded with Redbacks 2nd XI selection, SACA Team of the Year inclusion, selection for the Australian U19 team for the 2022 World Cup in the Caribbean (Jan/Feb 22), and a SACA Rookie contract for the 2022/23 season.

The South Australian sensation is a serious prospect for not only the Redbacks but Australian cricket. Not only a fine batter from the top of the order but an accomplished slow left-arm spinner who has bagged 88 wickets at 23.19 for Glenelg at the point of writing (06/12/22).

Higgins is a player of significant national interest and is looking to continue his development with a stint abroad in 2023. Given current immigration rules, despite his talent, he is currently ineligible to play as a professional in the UK, therefore is seeking an opportunity in the Republic of Ireland (LCU) or the Dutch Topklasse Competition next summer.

There are no overseas stats available for this player.
