Liam Hatcher BBL: A tall and lanky fast bowler, Liam Hatcher has all the attributes to become a future star in Australian Cricket. He hasn’t got a lot of opportunities to prove himself as yet. The 24-year old fast bowler is currently plying his trade for Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League 2020-21.
Born in Liverpool, New South Wales, Liam Hatcher had a liking towards the game since his childhood. Impressive performances at the junior level meant he made his debut in the List-A cricket for Australia XI in 2015. On 5th October 2015, Liam Hatcher played his first List-A game in the BBQ Matador One-Day Cup. A few weeks later, he got the opportunity to make his first-class debut. On 29th October 2015, he represented Cricket XI against New Zealand as part of New Zealand’s tour of Australia.
The year 2015 was no less than a dream for Liam. In December 2015, he was selected as a part of Australia’s squad for the 2016 Under-19 World Cup. Hatcher has also toured England with the Australian Under-19 team, and was involved in the team's Youth ODI Tri Series against New Zealand and Pakistan in February 2016.
Liam Hatcher was signed by Melbourne Stars ahead of the start of 2020-21 Big Bash League. He was previously part of Sydney Thunder but couldn’t make his debut during his association with the club.
Hatcher made his debut for Melbourne Stars in the 2020-21 BBL against Sydney Thunders. He grabbed eyeballs after producing a fine spell of fast bowling in his debut game. He claimed three crucial wickets of Callum Ferguson, Ben Cutting and Daniel Sams and gave away just 28 runs in his spell of 4 overs. His spell helped Melbourne Star win that game by 22 runs.
Overall, Liam has played 6 games in BBL so far, picking 10 wickets at an economy of 8.74. His spell of 3 for 28 against Thunder remains his best performance so far.
Besides, Liam Hatcher is currently part of New South Wales state side. He made his List-A and first Class debuts for New South Wales in 2019-20 season.
