Cricket Biography: Peter is a highly ambitious top order batsman from Sydney’s West. Peter’s junior career started in Western Sydney playing representative cricket for Penrith. Peter was fortunate enough at a young age to be selected for the representative Green Shield XI (premier u/16 competition in NSW) and from there was selected in the NSW u/17 team which was successful in winning the national competition captained by Phillip Hughes.
In 2006/07 Peter was selected in the NSW u/19 team based on a strong season in Sydney first grade making his maiden first grade century at 17 years of age. Peter was awarded the Steve Waugh Trophy after the national u/19 tournament, which boasted the likes of Phillip Hughes, Sam Robson, Steven Smith, Scott Henry, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazelwood.
Peter believes spending an off-season in England focusing on developing his game would greatly assist him in achieving representative honours back in Australia.
