Profile

A wicketkeeper who moved from Victoria in 2008, Peter Nevill has been a constant presence in the New South Wales side over the past few seasons. Even when Brad Haddin has been free of national duties, Nevill has often been included in the state side as a specialist batsman alongside Haddin, so solid is his batting. A strong 2011-12 season brought 570 runs at 51.81 and he was added to Australia's Test squad for the 2012 tour of the West Indies as backup for Matthew Wade, after Haddin flew home to be with his ill daughter. There was no Test debut on that trip but an outstanding 2014-15 season, in which he finished eighth on the Sheffield Shield run tally with 764, including a career-best 235 not out against Tasmania, earned him a place as Haddin's backup on the Test tours of West Indies and England in 2015. Nevill's leadership has also been recognised - he captained a Cricket Australia Invitational XI against the touring England side in 2013-14 and made his Sheffield Shield captaincy debut in the same month.
