Todd Murphy is a 22-year-old talented off-spinner from Australia who has quickly risen to prominence in the world of cricket.
Born in Echuca and raised in Moama, Murphy was spotted by spin guru Craig Howard at the age of 16 and began to develop his off-spin skills. He was selected for the 2020 U19 World Cup where he took seven wickets and made a significant impact.
Murphy made his Sheffield Shield debut for Victoria at the end of the 2020-21 season and broke out in 2022 as one of Australia’s top spinners. His strong performances led to selection for the Australia A tour of Sri Lanka and a full contract with the Sydney Sixers. He is widely considered to be the heir apparent to Nathan Lyon, having been the most prolific spinner at the halfway point of the 2022-23 Shield season.
The right-arm off-spinner has played for Australia U-19, Sydney Sixers and Victoria Second XI so far in his career. He made his first-class debut for Victoria in 2021 against South Australia at the MCG in Melbourne. Having played 7 first class games, Murphy has scalped 29 wickets at a thoroughly impressive average of 25.20 and economy 2.62.
Talking about his List A debut, it came against Tasmania at the MCG on 10th March 2021. From 14 matches in List A cricket, the offie has scalped 12 wickets at an economy of 5.13. Murphy has also represented Sydney Sixers in BBL and made his debut in the 2021-22 season.
