Profile for Wes Agar. Profile Updated On 15 Thursday April 2021 234848000000
A talented fast bowler with genuine pace, Wes Agar has been highly talked about in the cricketing circles of Australia. His has been a fairy tale story thus far, despite having had an elder brother (Ashton Agar) who has already played for the country. During his teenage days in Victoria, Agar didn't quite have the pace or build for a quick bowler. He went through the age-group categories but wasn't quite in the reckoning. That's when the move to Adelaide happened. It was a gamble really, as he decided to work part-time to fund himself while also vigorously working on his physique. The result was a fitter and stronger Wes Agar who had upped his pace considerably.

Agar had joined a grade side at Adelaide University and his talent impressed all those who saw him play. Consequently, he got the opportunity to represent Australia in the under-age competition conducted in Dubai before ultimately getting a call up for South Australia in the Sheffield Shield in 2016. He was then part of a training camp for the National Performance Squad that was held in Brisbane. It's still early days in his career but there is a feeling that Agar could become someone special for Australia if he can continue to keep up the good work. He debuted in the 2016-17 BBL season for Adelaide Strikers and has been retained for the upcoming season as well.
