Matthew Wade

Gritty, powerful and a natural leader, Tigers skipper Matthew Wade is synonymous with Tasmanian cricket. Making the return to his home state in 2017 after years with the Victorian Bushrangers, Wades’ ferocious batting style and keeping abilities have made him one of the best keeper/batters in recent memory.

A memorable 2018/19 Sheffield Shield campaign saw Wade amass over 1000 runs at an average of 60, Including two centuries and a high score of 127. Though international commitments have at times limited his availability, Wade can turn any game whenever he wears the Tasmanian badge and averaged 57 in his four appearances last season.

A Hobart local with strong family ties to local Tasmanian cricket, Wades’ return to the apple isle has been fantastic for cricket in the state. A recent world cup winner and with 36 test appearances for Australia, his wisdom and experience at international level can only serve the Tigers well in future endeavors.
