Profile for Nicholas Selman. Profile Updated On 17 Friday September 2021 200421000000
A state-level Australian Rules football player, Nicholas James Selman, gave up football to pursue a career in cricket. At the age of 19, Selman signed with Glamorgan after featuring in Kent's Second eleven side and a lone game with Gloucsestershire. The route to play Championship cricket, though, was enabled through his dual Australian-British citizenship, and he certainly relished playing at the Welsh club.

In his debut season for Glamorgan, in 2016, Selman impressed one and all with his fluent stroke-making and displayed glimpses of his ability to play a long innings. The Australian-born is also not afraid to play a counter-attacking knock, if the need be and it was duly vindicated when Selman compiled almost half the team's total, 101, against Gloucestershire at Cardiff in September 2016. He notched up his maiden Championship ton against Northants the same year, and became the first batsman to carry the bat in 12 years, while at it.

The following season, Selman had even better returns with the bat with four hundreds against his name and he achieved all of it before his 22nd birthday. His four centuries also included his career-best score of 142* against Gloucestershire, almost exactly an year after he scored a counter-attacking hundred at the same venue (Cardiff).

Glamorgan did try Selman in the limited-overs fixtures, more so in the T20s, but with the emergence of power-hitting batsmen like Aneurin Donald and Craig Meschede, Selman's often considered as a back-up option for the seasons 2017 and '18. Although Selman suffered the wrath of moving ball more often than not, the fact that he likes to be challenged and opens the batting in red-ball cricket, almost every time, keeps him in good stead for the future.
