A talented young left-hand batsman, Sam Heazlett made a name for himself immediately upon his promotion to first-class cricket, scoring 129 and 78 on debut against Tasmania early in the 2015-16 season.
Heazlett went on to post 649 runs at 40.56 for the Shield summer, the third-best debut season for a Queensland batsman behind Matthew Hayden and England import Graeme Hick.
He was called up for Australia's ODI squad to tour New Zealand in early 2017, a surprise selection given that at the time he was yet to play a one-day game for his state. However, Heazlett had impressed in a winter A series in 2016, when he made his List A debut for the National Performance Squad and averaged 72 across five matches.
Away from the game, Heazlett is a keen surfer and is studying to become a physiotherapist.
