Daniel Leerdam is an intelligent and high-quality, Top Order Batsman from the ACT Region of Australia. A classy Right-hander, Daniel was graded by Australian National University CC and made his first appearance for the 1st XI as a 17-year old in Summer 2015-16. He was appointed the ANU 1st XI captain the following season, at just 18 years old, which was a sign of the maturity with which he goes about not just cricket but life in general.

A soon-to-be qualified Electrician, Daniel has represented the ACT at U17, U19 and in the Futures League against the other state 2nd XI’s. He was player of the tournament at the NSW Country Championships and has gone on to also captain the ACT in both the T20 & One-Day formats.

Always seeking to improve, he spent a winter in the Northern Territory as a member of the inaugural NT Strike League with the Northern Tide and in 2019 was 13th man for Australia in the Manuka Oval Test Match against Sri Lanka and 12th Man for the Prime Ministers XI just prior.

For summer 2022-23, Daniel is returning to Sydney to link up with Sydney CC in the NSW Premier Cricket Competition.

An aspiring professional cricketer and looking for a season of cricket overseas to improve his game, Daniel is also keen to experience life in a different country and to meet some new people. Although a hard worker who plays to win, Daniel values the off-field side to the game and will be a good social fit at any club.

Daniel will be travelling with his partner who holds a UK Passport.
