A right-hand batsman Murdoch started his career with Wellington's youth side and played age group cricket for them. During that period, he also represented New Zealand U 19 team. However, the upgrade to next level came only when he was 25 in a List A game against Northern Districts.
Murdoch had to wait two more years to make his first class debut and it was in 2010 that Wellington handed the right-hander his maiden cap versus the same side, he made 19 in the first innings but followed it with an impressive 79 in the second. Though Wellington lost the game, Murdoch was imprinted as a player to watch out for.
In the next eight years, Murdoch became a regular in the Wellington side and scored runs in abundance, over 4000 runs with 12 hundreds in first class cricket, while also aggregating over 2500 runs in the shorter forms of the game.
