Sam Whiteman has been WA’s premier wicket-keeper batsman since making his Sheffield Shield debut in November 2012 as a 20-year-old.
He is a classy left-handed batsman and stylish wicketkeeper. He made a solid progression in his first season at Shield level before starring in WA’s run to the Shield final in 2013-14. He made 687 runs at 45.80 in that season and captured 45 dismissals for the Warriors.
He was called up to the Australia A squad in the winter series in 2014 and scored a century against India A.
In October 2014 he was part of the Warriors first one-day domestic title since 2003-04.
He was outstanding for the Perth Scorchers the BBL06 final in 2017 scoring a blistering 41 off just 21 balls opening the batting to make light work of the winning chase against the Sydney Sixers at the WACA.
Whiteman is only one of two players, alongside Adam Voges, to have played in all three of the Perth Scorchers BBL titles.
He has scored three first-class hundreds in 50 matches and looks destined for higher honours.
