Share Project :

Tanveer is one of the brightest young talents in the country. He is a dangerous leg spinning allrounder who can contribute to the game with both bat and ball.

He showed this when, in 2018, he represented Australia in an under 16 series against Pakistan in Melbourne. His most notable performances with the ball were 4/12 and 3/37 and he also made some very important lower order runs with the bat.

In the same year, he represented New South Wales Metro in the U17 National Championships held in Queensland where he was their leading wicket taker. He also performed strongly for the Cricket Australia XI in the U19 National Championships in Adelaide which resulted in him being selected for the Australian U19 tour of Sri Lanka in January 2019.

Tanveer earned himself a spot as the Sydney Thunder Development Rookie for BBL08 and was then promoted the next year to their primary list for BBL09 in 2019. He also played in NSW Metro's winning team in the U19 National Championships. He then represented Australia in the 2020 U19 World Cup in South Africa, dominating with the ball taking 15 wickets at an average of just 11.46. A State contract with NSW followed at the age of just 18.

Later that year, Tanveer made his debut for the Sydney Thunder in BBL10 against the Melbourne Stars. He finished the 3rd highest wicket taker in the competition with 21 wickets and was selected in the Australian T20 squad against New Zealand as a result. All at the age of just 19.
