Mickey Edwards is a giant 6 foot 7 inch fast-bowler hailing from the northern beaches of Sydney.
Since making his 1st Grade debut with Manly Warringah in the 2012/13 season, Mickey has won a First Grade Premiership in Sydney and represented NSW in Sheffield Shield and One Day Domestic competitions and Sydney Sixers in the BBL.
Mickey was rewarded for his stellar season in 2014/15 and was signed with the Sydney Sixers for BBL|05 and also with NSW on a rookie contract. His next two seasons were unfortunately interrupted due to stress fractures, but commenced bowling again in the 2017/18 JLT Cup where he made an immediate impact with impressive figures of 4-31 in a lively spell v Tasmania at the WACA.
Mickey became an instant cult hero at the Australia v Pakistan Sydney Test match in January 2017 where he came on to field as a replacement fielder for Dave Warner. Click here to watch.
After overcoming several frustrating injuries in recent seasons, Mickey is having his best season ever in 2022-23, with his impressive bowling performances in Premier Cricket and NSW 2nd XI earning him a recall to the NSW team and Sydney Sixers in BBL11.
He made his BBL debut for the Sydney Sixers in December, 2017 then made his First Class debut for NSW in January 2018.
In February 2023, Mickey signed for Yorkshire and made the decision to move to there permanently, as he has a UK passport - he made his County debut in April, 2023.
