Chadd Sayers made his Test debut in Johannesburg in 2018, a Test that was overshadowed by the ball tampering that had taken place in the previous game in Cape Town but he took the prize scalp of AB de Villiers for his first Test wicket.

A swing bowler who played one Sheffield Shield game in 2010-11 and two the following summer, Sayers suddenly became one of the most threatening bowlers on the Australian domestic scene in 2012-13. Capitalising on his ability to gain late outswing against right-handers, Sayers topped the Shield wicket tally with 48 victims at 18.52 and not surprisingly won the Neil Dansie Medal as South Australia's player of the season. He also ensured that he would be in the minds of the national selectors in future, and a call-up to the Test squad eventually came for the 2016 tour of New Zealand. He continued to dominate Shield cricket and be on the fringes of national selection before finally getting his baggy green in South Africa. However, a knee injury curtailed his 2018-19 Shield season and prevented him making a push for Ashes contention.

The son of a former Shield cricketer - his father Dean played three matches for South Australia in the early 1980s - Sayers has long been one of the standout performers in Adelaide club cricket for Woodville and Glenelg.
