Profile

A product of the Under-19 system, Anton Devcich turned out five times for New Zealand in the 2004 Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh. Though he began his first-class career batting at Nos. 9 and 10, Devcich eventually worked his way up to the middle order. In his debut match for Northern Districts, against Otago in the 2004-05 State Championship, Devcich batted at No. 9 but made a mark with an unbeaten 94. While he couldn't quite keep up that level of performance in the matches that followed, Devcich built up his credentials as a batsman to become a regular opener in the shorter formats.
