Nicholas James Maddison is a left-handed top-order batsman and is a handy bowler who can bowl some spin if needed. He is also the skipper of the Melbourne Renegades. Maddison has also represented Australia in international cricket.
Nic Maddinson was part of the NSW U19 side in 2009. He was consistently scoring runs for the Australia U19 side as well. In the home series against Sri Lanka U19, he averaged 72 with the bat and also scored a century.
This led to his selection in the Australian U19 side for the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in 2010. Australia won the Cup that season. He also performed brilliantly for his Sutherland District Club (SDC) in the 2009-10 season and scored 604 runs with an average of 46.46.
He is also a handy bowler, he proved that in the Semi-final game against Eastern Suburbs Cricket Club by picking 5 wickets for 95 runs. After consistently performing at the U19 and Club level, Maddison finally made his first-class debut against South Australia on October 11, 2010.
He scored a fine century of 113 runs on his debut and became the youngest NSW player to do so. Maddison also made List-A debut in the same month on October 9, 2010. He scored a brilliant fifty off 54 runs and looked impressive with the bat.
Talking about his domestic stats so far, Maddinson has played 98 FC games and has scored 6316 runs at an average of 39.97 including 14 hundred and 31 fifties and also has 8 wickets to his name.
His List-A numbers are also prolific and have scored 2695 runs from his 83 List-A games including 6 hundred and 14 fifties and also has 7 wickets to his name with the ball.
After consistently performing in the domestic circuit over the years, Maddison was finally selected in the test squad of Australia against South Africa in the home series in November 2016.
He made his debut on November 24, 2016. Maddison did not have a debut to remember as he was dismissed for a duck in the 1st innings.
He later got his chances against the touring Pakistani team as well but failed to leave his mark. Nic has played 3 games so far and has scored 27 runs in his 4 innings at an average of just 6.75.
After some consistent performances for the Australia A side, Maddinson was selected in the Australian side for the Only T20I against India in October 2013.
He made his debut October 10, 2013, at Rajkot, Maddinson opened the innings and scored an aggressive 34 off 16 balls and straight away made his mark.
Nic has played 6 T20I games so far and has scored 45 runs at an average of just 11.25. He played his last game way back in 2018.
Maddinson is yet to replicate his domestic brilliance at the big stage and will be desperate to score when he gets his chance.
Maddinson made his BBL debut way back in 2011. He played for Sydney Sixers until the 2017/18 season and also captained the side in a few games. He later shifted to Melbourne Stars and currently plays for Melbourne Renegades.
He has played over 95 games and has scored 1837 runs and is known to be a handy bowler as well. He also smashed over 75+ sixes and can hit the ball long.
As of now, the 30-year-old has signed for the Renegades until the 2023-24 season and is going to be a crucial part of the setup.
Maddinson also made his appearance in the toughest league of the World for Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2014 but was later ruled out of the tournament due to injury.
He has played 3 IPL games so far and has scored 20 runs at an average of 6. Maddinson returning to the IPL in the near future does not look like a possibility as of now but has surely got the skill set to make it again.
