The hard-hitting all-rounder graduated from the Under-17 age group level, where he represented Western Australia, during the 2008-09 season and was subsequently selected to play in the Under-23 squad in Australia's second tier competition, Futures League. Cartwright showed immense promise with the bat and was more than useful with the ball - factors which led to his first-class debut for Western Australia in 2013-14.
A very gritty customer at the crease, Cartwright's breakthrough season came in 2016-16 when he shone in the Matador Cup and had a strong Sheffield Season to boot. The consistency meant he was called-up for the Australian 50-over squad against the visiting New Zealand, in 2016. He didn't get to play in any match, but the experience was valuable and he was called-up to make his Test debut against Pakistan in the same summer.
Cartwright then got a game in the Test series in Bangladesh but couldn't produce an innings of substance. His batting ability coupled with the utility medium pace meant that he had a strong case to be Australia's number six in Tests, given the country's favoritism towards all-rounders. However, a loss of form in the Sheffield Shield season meant that he was overlooked for the all-important Ashes series with Australia opting for the specialist batsman in Shaun Marsh.
Cartwright did make his ODI debut during the tour of India in late 2017 but got just a solitary game where he struggled to get going. Although having played a decent number of games in First-class circuit, Cartwright is still very young and definitely has the time to improve his game in a big way. It does seem like he is more adept at red-ball cricket, at least the stats suggest so although one cannot rule him out from making a statement in the shorter formats. His multiple skill set means that he will continue to be in the radar of the Aussie selectors.
