Salter made his debut in county cricket for Wales Minor Counties against Wiltshire in the 2010 MCCA Knockout Trophy,[2] and in that same season he made his debut in the Minor Counties Championship against Devon.[3] In early 2011, he played four Youth One Day Internationals for England Under-19s against Sri Lanka Under-19s during England Under-19s tour there.[4] While studying for a Higher National Diploma in Sport Coaching & Development at Cardiff Metropolitan University,[1] Salter made his first-class debut for Cardiff MCC University in the team's inaugural appearance in first-class cricket against Somerset at Taunton Vale Sports Club Ground in 2012.
