Taylor Bettelheim is one of the brightest batting prospects coming through the pathway system in New Zealand.

Originally from the Bay of Plenty, Bettelheim relocated to the Wairarapa this summer (2023/24) in search of State honours. The move has proved a success with inclusion for Central Districts A, alongside run-filled exploits for his Club (Greytown), and the Minor Association (Wairarapa).

On debut for CD A (Oct 2023), he top scored in both innings, striking 47 in the first, then a brilliant 227-ball 169 in the second to help CD to a 7-wicket victory over Wellington A. In recent months he has also dominated the Premier club scene, including a sensational 33-ball 115* (11x4s, 10x6s) in a Premier T20 match against Lansdowne.

It’s fair to say Bettelheim was a sought-after acquisition, and his move was hotly pursued by rival districts. Since his early teens, the opening batter has seemed destined for professional cricket. He starred for Tauranga Boys’ College winning numerous awards including the "Sportsman", "Cricketer", and "Batter" of the year in 2019.

Post COVID, Bettelheim continued to churn runs at all levels, winning awards and accolades along the way, including most recently the Northern District’s Association Male Player of the Year for 2022/23. His award, which culminated with ND A honours, was courtesy of his chart-topping season for Waikato Valley, hitting notable centuries against his former Association (Bay of Plenty – 179), and Counties Manukau (113), following his 211 for BOP against the Valley in a Cup match the previous summer.

The run hungry batter, who bowls useful leg-spin, is now set to play in the Netherlands (VOC) in 2024, but is, thereafter, seeking a European return in 2025.

There are no overseas stats available for this player.
