Anton Paul Devcich (born 28 September 1985 in Hamilton) is a New Zealand international cricketer, who plays limited over internationals. A left-handed batsman who occasionally bowls left-arm orthodox spin, at the domestic level he plays for Northern Districts.[1]

Career[edit]

Devcich represented New Zealand at youth level, making five appearances at the Under-19 Cricket World Cup in 2004.[2] He made his first-class debut against Otago a year later, he didn't take a wicket but from number nine scored 94 not out including 15 boundaries.[3] He played three further first-class matches in the 2004-05 season but in five innings failed to pass 30.[4]

He made List A and Twenty20 debuts the following season but has been unable to secure a first-team place with only sporadic appearances in all formats.[4] In the 2017–18 Super Smash, he was the leading run-scorer, with 343 runs in ten matches.[5]

In April 2018, he was named the Super Smash Player of the Year at the New Zealand Cricket Awards.[6] In June 2018, he was awarded a contract with Northern Districts for the 2018–19 season.[7]

He was the leading run-scorer for the Nangarhar Leopards in the 2018–19 Afghanistan Premier League, with 270 runs in nine matches.[8] He was the leading wicket-taker for Northern Districts in the 2018–19 Ford Trophy, with twelve dismissals in seven matches.[9]

In July 2019, he was selected to play for the Edinburgh Rocks in the inaugural edition of the Euro T20 Slam cricket tournament.[10][11] However, the following month the tournament was cancelled.[12]
