Tanveer Sangha’s cricketing journey is one filled with promise and determination. At the age of 16, he captured the attention of former Australia spinner Fawad Ahmed in 2018, setting the stage for his remarkable rise in the world of cricket. Hailing from Sydney’s south-western suburbs as the son of Indian migrants, Sangha embarked on his junior cricket career as a fast bowler. However, a pivotal moment in his early teens revealed his innate talent as a leg-spinner, igniting his passion for the game.
Sangha’s introduction to club cricket was marked by instant success, and it wasn’t long before he was selected for state and international underage teams. It was during a series for Australia’s Under-16 team in Melbourne that he crossed paths with Fawad Ahmed, a meeting that would influence his cricketing journey significantly. Sangha’s prowess shone brightly on the global stage as he delivered an outstanding performance at the 2020 Under-19 World Cup in South Africa.
Later that year, at the age of 18, Sangha’s dedication and hard work paid off when he secured a rookie contract with the NSW Blues. Making his debut for the Sydney Thunder in the KFC BBL, he immediately left an indelible mark. His temperament under pressure and his ability to dismiss some of the competition’s finest players showcased his immense potential and cemented his status as a rising star in Australian cricket.
