Following his remarkable 170 against the Blues, Renshaw wrapped up his debut Sheffield Shield campaign as Queensland’s top run-scorer, accumulating an impressive 738 runs at an average of 43.41 during the 2015-16 season.
In 2017, Renshaw achieved a significant milestone by becoming the first Australian cricketer to reach 500 Test runs before turning 21 years old. He currently holds the record for the highest number of Test runs scored by an Australian before reaching the age of 21, amassing a total of 524 runs.
In the 2016-17 Test series against South Africa, already lost by Australia, Renshaw received his debut call-up for the third Test in Adelaide. Three Tests later, he celebrated his maiden century, an outstanding performance of 184 runs against Pakistan in Sydney.
However, a challenging period ensued with six Tests played in Asia (four in India and two in Bangladesh) along with a slow start to the subsequent Shield season. This led to Renshaw’s omission from the 2017-18 Ashes series, where Cameron Bancroft was preferred in his place.
Ironically, Renshaw was later summoned to replace the suspended Bancroft during the tumultuous South Africa tour in early 2018. Nevertheless, his next Test appearance would only materialize during the Sydney Test in 2022-23, when he was recalled to the middle order after several successful seasons batting at No. 5 for Queensland.
