Josh Clarkson is arguably one of New Zealand’s hottest batting prospects. A tall, powerful batter who doubles as a sharp medium-pacer, Clarkson is treading the right path towards national honours.

The former New Zealand Under-19 player made his first-class debut for Central Districts in October 2015 but has since only played 10 Plunket Shield matches.

However, he has become an integral member of the Stags’ white-ball sides and, courtesy of his explosive hitting has generated national recognition with inclusion (October 2019) to play England for the New Zealand XI side.

Clarkson boasts a tremendous record in both the Ford Trophy (List A) and Super Smash (T20) competitions, where he averages 34.97 and 28, with strike rates of 99.86 and 148.55, respectively.

He has been a stand-out in the Ford Trophy, in particular, hitting season tallies of 273 runs at 54.60 (2016/17), 216 runs at 43.20 (2017/18), 278 runs at 34.75 (2018/19), 172 runs at 19.11 (2019/20), 308 runs at 44 (2020/21), and 195 runs at 32.50 (2021/22) striking at over a run-a-ball.

He has struck magnificent centuries in Ford Trophy cricket, namely 103 (95 balls) and 111 (107 balls), both against an Auckland attack that featured the likes of Mitch McClenaghan and Tarun Nethula.

The Nelson-based batting all-rounder is clearly a star for the future and, after a prolific season in Darwin in 2019, where he finished second on the Darwin and District Cricket Competition run charts (651 runs at 47.31), he is now keen on a UK stint in 2023.

A highly-rated cricketer and someone who we suspect will absolutely dominate league cricket next summer.
