Tyran Liddiard is a immensely talented young cricketer from Penrith in Sydney’s Western Suburbs. A Penrith DCC junior, Tyran was graded at 15 for the Panthers Club and he is now not only a First Grade regular but an integral member of the side. An outstanding wicket-keeper, Tyran is an attacking Left-hander that can fulfil multiple roles in all 3 formats. From top-order dasher with his clean hitting to middle order re-builder, such is Tyran’s skill-set that he is able to adjust almost seamlessly and contribute in any manner that is needed by his team.
An impressive young man, who is incredibly proud of his Indigenous heritage, Tyran was both honoured and deserving of his selection in the Australian Indigenous XI for the first time in 2015 alongside the likes of Dan Christian, D’Arcy Short & Brendan Doggett. In 2018, he was a member of the successful Aboriginal XI tour to England as they won 5 out of 6 matches on tour, beating the MCC (twice), Derbyshire, Surrey and Notts. Tyran was honoured to be made captain of the Sydney Thunder Indigenous XI at just 21 in summer 2018-19.
In the 2018-19 Sydney First Grade Grand Final, Tyran produced one of his finest performances, when it mattered most. Having rolled Sydney University for 207, the Penrith run chase hit a couple of speedbumps, as Tyran entered at 97-4. With wickets falling around him, Tyran would hold his nerve on Grade Cricket’s biggest occasion. Superbly marshalling the lower order, Tyran struck a match-winning 97 and was last man out with the score on 249 and Penrith holding a title-winning first innings lead.
Tyran was duly awarded the Benaud Medal for Man of the Match in the Grand Final, the 2nd youngest recipient of the awarded ever and capped off what finished as a 1000-run season across all formats. He backed this up in 2020-21 with 705 runs @ 41.50 with a best of 125* against Hawkesbury DCC.
His excellent for was rewarded with a NSW 2nd XI call up in 2021-22 and on debut, sturck a magnificent 114* (108) to see NSW chase down the 461 target set by Tasmania.
Seeking his first season abroad in 2023, Tyran will be an outstanding pick-up for any club seeking a prolific top order batsman that is also an outstanding gloveman and a fine young man.
