Player Bio

A tearaway fast-bowler is a rare breed in the modern era and if a bowler can bowl at mid 150kmph, and that too with a non-taxing action. Riley Meredith, Australia’s upcoming express right-arm quick is one from the rare category who burst onto the scene during the BBL 10, where he pushed the batsmen on the backfoot to take their wickets with his extreme pace. 


The Hobart-born made his List-A debut in 2017 against Pakistan and then made his First-Class debut for Tasmania in the 2017-18 season. He shone brightly in his maiden season to become his side’s vital cog and became Tasmanian spearhead in the absence of Jackson Bird in the latter stage of the tournament. 


Meredith’s express pace and impeccable performances at the domestic level got him the T20 debut for Hobart Hurricanes in the 2017-18 season of the Big Bash League (BBL), where he played the semi-final and final, sharing the ball with Jofra Archer. Later that year, he snapped 27 wickets in his eight Sheffield Shield games and also took 16 wickets in the BBL 8. 


The pacer was peaking in the ninth edition of the BBL as well and scalped 10 wickets in the tournament but got injured after playing six games. However, the pacer made a solid comeback in the BBL 10 where he impressed various veterans of the game with his pace and execution during all phases of the game. In the 2020-21 season, he picked 16 wickets and a healthy economy of 7.83. 


The Tasmania-born’s maiden national call-up came in September 2020, when Australia toured England for the limited-overs series but didn’t get the chance to make his international debut. Post his success in the BBL, Meredith was again called for the national duties for the Trans-Tasman series in February 2021. 


Meredith made his T20 debut against New Zealand in the third game of the series at Wellington. The impressive fast-bowler got three games where he took four wickets, including the golden wicket of the opposition skipper Kane Williamson twice in the series. 


In February 2021, Punjab Kings bought Meredith for INR 8 crore in the mini-auction ahead for the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League. Meredith is taking long strides in the domestic circuit and has already gathered huge praise from former players like Adam Griffith.
