Ross ter Braak is an exciting prospect playing for the star-studded Auckland Aces in New Zealand domestic cricket.

A left-arm seam bowling all-rounder, ter Braak is into his third contracted season with the Aces, in a squad that features the likes of Martin Guptill, Lockie Ferguson, Kyle Jamieson, George Worker, Glenn Phillips, Mark Chapman, and Will Somerville, to name just a few Blackcaps stars.

The left-arm quick enjoyed a headline-grabbing debut 2020/21 season, particularly in the respective white-ball formats.

He was the Aces leading wicket-taker, bagging 23 wickets. He finished towards the top of New Zealand’s Super Smash T20 tournament wicket-charts, and of all the bowlers with 10 plus wickets, he topped both bowling average (15.45) and strike rate (11.36), tallies. He enjoyed similar success in the One-Day Competition (Ford Trophy) topping the Aces charts bagging 14 wickets at 31.50.

His success came as no surprise to those in the know. A former schoolboy prodigy, ter Braak represented Auckland through the age groups, and courtesy of his dominant National Provincial U19 Tournament (9 wickets at 11.66) won New Zealand selection for the ICC Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh (February 2016), playing alongside Rachin Ravindra, Glenn Phillips, and Finn Allen.

Roll on a few years, and after success for Takapuna in Auckland Premier Grade cricket, he would earn his List A and T20 debuts for the Aces in December 2020, with his first-class (Plunket Shield) debut following in March 2021.

During the same 2020/21 summer, alongside his success for the Aces, he would also pick up the “Bowler of the Tournament” award for his success for Takapuna at the National Club Championships.

Ter Braak, though, is not simply an exciting quick, but he has proven to be a useful middle-order batter at both club and provincial level, with fifties at both levels.

A highly motivated cricketer, ter Braak aspires to become a Blackcap in the future, but for now, has targeted a return abroad in 2023 following a brief stint in Essex with Fives and Heronians last summer.
