Mitchell Owen is an exciting homegrown Tasmanian talented currently contracted to the Tasmanian Tigers (Sheffield Shield) and Hobart Hurricanes (Big Bash League). A tall and athletic all-rounder, this powerfully built youngster has all the tools to become a outstanding long-term Professional Cricket across all three formats.
A clean striker of the ball, Mitch is a Right-handed Top/Middle Order Batsman that has the ability to take the game away from the opposition very quickly with his huge arc and sharp eye. No one trick pony, Mitch is also a skilful Right-arm Fast Medium seamer that can take the new ball and with his height, can give the opposition Batsman plenty of discomfort.
A star for Tasmania through the age groups, Mitch has followed a true pathway from Tasmania U17, Tasmanian Schoolboys, Tasmanian U19 and ultimately the senior sides with regular appearances for the Tasmanian 2nd XI in the Futures league before debuting for the Hurricanes and Tigers in season 2020-21 within a weeks of each other.
Still just a young man, Mitch is seeking his first season abroad in 2024 and will be an excellent pick up for any club seeking a gun middle order batsman for next summer. Mitch will be on restricted bowling duty until mid-season.
