Profile

With 68 First XI matches (at the beginning of 2016/17 season) already under his belt at the age of 24, Will Walker assumed the mantle of bowling group leader in 2015/16 with devastating effect.

Hailing from Mansfield, Will was named in the Camberwell Magpies’ ‘Team of the Decade (2007-16)’ last season – a remarkable achievement for someone still entering the peak of their career.

A left-armer who swings the ball at pace, Will’s 44 wickets at 17.02 in 2015/16 saw him stake his claim as the best new ball bowler in the state. His wonderful season culminated in selection as 12th Man in the Victorian Premier Cricket Team of the Year and a debut for the Victorian Second XI in the early stages of the 2016/17 season.
