Ryan Carters embarked on his cricket journey in the ACT during his junior years. He began his professional career with a Rookie contract in Victoria, marking his entry into First Class cricket. However, in the 2013/14 season, he made a significant move to NSW, where he made an immediate impact as an opener for the Sheffield Shield-winning team, scoring three centuries and four half-centuries.
In the years that followed, Carters showcased his versatility. He transitioned into the role of the ‘finisher’ for the NSW Limited Overs teams during the last two summers. Additionally, the elevation of Peter Nevill to the Australian team led to Carters taking up the wicketkeeping duties for the Blues’ Shield team while batting at number six.
The 2015/16 season saw Carters making appearances for the NSW side in the Matador BBQs One Day Cup, where his performances were somewhat inconsistent. Furthermore, he had the opportunity to open the batting for a Cricket Australia XI in a tour match against New Zealand, amassing 208 runs in partnership with Aaron Finch, with an opening stand totaling 503 runs at Blacktown International Sportspark. In Shield cricket, the determined right-hander scored 434 runs at an average of 31.00, with a highest score of 77.
Off the field, Carters founded the charity Batting for Change after a visit to Nepal, where he witnessed poverty and a lack of access to education. Batting for Change leverages the power of the Big Bash League, with every six hit contributing to a noble cause.
