A young talent from a Cricketing family, Wes Agar is a fast bowler who is making a name for himself in the Australian competitions. Originally from Victoria, Agar moved to South Australia in 2015 to seek out more opportunities, plying his trade at grade level before representing South Australia and Australia at Under 19 competitions. He was offered a Big Bash contract with the Adelaide Strikers ahead of the 2016/2017 season.
After a two-year stint at home in Victoria, Agar returned to Adelaide ahead of the 2019 season. He made his first-class debut in October 2019 which was the start of his breakout campaign. Impressing in the Sheffield Shield, Agar claimed 33 wickets to finish equal-second in the competition, to go with his 17 wickets for the Strikers.
Agar’s 19/20 season was capped off when he was awarded the 2020 Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year award at the Cricket Australia National Awards. He claimed this alongside the Neil Dansie Award for South Australia’s Best Domestic Player and the Most Improved Award.
