A young and aspiring batsman who relocated from the ACT to South Australia in pursuit of opportunities at the state level, Ross made a notable impact by accumulating runs in the 2014 Matador Cup. Subsequently, he earned a coveted Big Bash League (BBL) contract with the Adelaide Strikers, marking his debut in the inaugural match against the Melbourne Stars.
Ross, a hard-hitting right-handed batsman, experienced a remarkable season in 2015-16, which led to his recognition with the Bradman Young Cricket of the Year award at the prestigious Allan Border Medal night. During this impressive summer, he came tantalizingly close to achieving his maiden century, with notable scores of 88 not out and 97 in the Matador Cup, along with an impressive 92 not out in the Sheffield Shield.
Former Australia fast-bowler Damien Fleming affectionately dubbed him the ‘sweepologist’ due to his proficiency in playing the sweep shot. Subsequently, Ross secured a significant deal with the Brisbane Heat in BBL|06, further solidifying his reputation as a promising talent in the world of cricket. His performances suggest that he would comfortably adapt to the international stage if given the opportunity.
