Nick Selman

Date of birth 18.10.1995 Squad number 9 Role in team Opening Batsman Glamorgan debut 8 May 2016 v Worcestershire at Cardiff (CC) Random fact Nick names his bats after race horses

2017 was a breakthrough summer for Nick Selman as the opening batsman scored four centuries and led Glamorgan to victory with a fine hundred against Durham at Swansea.

He joined Glamorgan in 2016 after an impressive trial for the Welsh county’s 2nd XI during August and September 2015. After a series of centuries in 2nd XI cricket, Nick was a regular face in the Welsh county’s line-up for the second half of the Championship season. Nick posted his maiden first-class hundred against Northamptonshire at Swansea, besides becoming the first opening batsman for a dozen years to carry his bat throughout an innings, with the right-hander also adding a second century to his tally in the match against Gloucestershire at The SSE SWALEC.

Born and raised in Brisbane, Nick has represented Queensland in both cricket and Australian Rules football at age-grade levels, before opting to choose cricket as his first-choice sport. Since 2014 he has played club and second eleven cricket in south-east England, using his dual Australian-British citizenship, in the hope of securing a professional contract with a county side. His run-scoring for Tunbridge Wells CC attracted the attention of Kent for whom he made his second eleven debut in 2014, besides having trials with Gloucestershire and Glamorgan 2nd XI’s in 2015.
