Ashton Turner announced himself on the world stage when he made 84 not out from 43 balls in his second ODI to help Australia chase a record 359 in Mohali against India in 2019. The tall, powerful right-hander, who mixes clearing the rope with deft placement and brilliant running between the wickets, has made a habit of chasing unlikely totals as a middle order specialist in the BBL for the Perth Scorchers. Rajasthan Royals bought him for the 2019 IPL on the back of those performances. He has also shown his leadership qualities standing in as captain for the Scorchers and Western Australia.

Despite his heroics in Mohali, he did not play a single game on the following five-match ODI tour of the UAE and missed selection in the 2019 World Cup squad. Significant right shoulder issues have restricted his throwing ability in the field and he has scarcely bowled since 2017 despite initially developing as an offspinning allrounder in his early years in first-class cricket.

A highly-regarded player who came through the junior pathways and played in the 2012 Under-19 World Cup, Turner made his first-class debut in elite company in 2013, when he was in England playing club cricket and was called into Australia's XI in a tour match against Sussex. He enjoyed a breakout summer in 2016-17, which culminated in a call-up to Australia's T20 side to play against Sri Lanka in February 2017. Earlier in the season he had scored his maiden first-class century against Tasmania and followed that two matches later with another hundred against Queensland.
