TEAMS

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.

Despite being a consistent performer in the domestic circuit with an ability to strike the ball powerfully, Devcich struggled to seal a permanent spot in the national side. After a good tour of India and Sri Lanka in 2013 as part of the A team - where he was among the top run-getters against both countries - Devcich earned a place in the senior team's limited-overs of Bangladesh which was held later that year. He scored a half-century on T20I debut, but a poor tour of Sri Lanka followed, where he could manage only six runs in three ODI innings, and he lost his place subsequently. Devcich had to wait another year for an opportunity, which came on the back of a fruitful Champions League T20 in 2014 where he was Northern Districts' second-highest run-getter. He failed, however, to make an impact once again, this time against Pakistan in UAE, scoring 84 runs in three ODI innings at 28.00.

Devcich had a tremendous 2015-16 domestic season in the shorter formats, scoring heavily in the domestic T20 and one-day tournaments, but failed to make the same impact in the first-class tournament.
