Hilton William Raymond Cartwright (born 14 February 1992) is an Australian cricketer currently contracted to the Perth Scorchers in Australian domestic cricket, having also played for Western Australia. Born in Harare, Zimbabwe,[1] Cartwright spent his early life in Marondera, but later emigrated to Australia with his family, attending Wesley College in Perth.[2] He played representative cricket for Western Australia at the 2008–09 Australian Under-17 Championships, and subsequently progressed to the state's under-23 side in the Futures League, debuting in February 2012.[3] After good form in a Futures League match against the Queensland Academy of Sport, recording a half-century and a five-wicket haul,[4] Cartwright was selected to debut for Western Australia's team for the 2012–13 Ryobi One-Day Cup against Victoria at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, held on 7 November 2012.[5] In the match, Cartwright scored four runs from seven deliveries coming in at number seven in the batting order, and took a single wicket in Victoria's innings bowling medium pace, Western Australia's only wicket of the match.[6]

Cartwright has since played a number of further one-day matches for Western Australia, and in December 2012 was named in the Perth Scorchers' squad for the 2012–13 Big Bash League season, replacing the injured Pat Cummins.[7] He debuted for Perth in the second match of the competition, against the Melbourne Stars, and top-scored with 17 runs from Perth's innings of 69, the lowest completed score recorded in the tournament.[8] Cartwright made his first-class debut for Western Australia in January 2013, against New South Wales in the Sheffield Shield.[9] At grade cricket level, he plays for the South Perth Cricket Club.[10] Also holding British citizenship,[11] Cartwright spent the 2010 English season playing for Sidmouth in the Devon Cricket League.[12]
