Dan Moriarty Bio

Daniel Thornhill Moriarty is an exceptional cricket player hailing from England. Known for his tall stature and impressive accuracy as a left-arm spinner, Moriarty emerged as a talented player during the curtailed 2020 summer season. He made his mark with an incredible five-wicket haul on his first-class debut against Middlesex in the Bob Willis Trophy.

Throughout the season, Moriarty showcased his skills on multiple occasions. He followed up his debut performance with outstanding match figures of 11 for 224 against Sussex in the final round, contributing significantly to Surrey’s victory. Moreover, he finished the season as Surrey’s highest wicket-taker in the Vitality Blast, even though they narrowly missed out on clinching the title against Nottinghamshire.

Moriarty’s competitive nature has drawn comparisons to esteemed former Surrey off-spinner Gareth Batty, as noted by the club captain Rory Burns. This comparison is a testament to the immense potential and talent that Moriarty possesses.

Born in Reigate, England, Moriarty is the son of an English father and a mother from South Africa. Growing up, he had the opportunity to experience cricket in various parts of the world due to his family’s relocation. He spent his early years in Botswana before moving to South Africa. During his time in South Africa, he represented the South Africa Under-19 team briefly before making his way to the United Kingdom at the age of 18.

The move to the UK opened doors for Moriarty, as he eventually gained opportunities to prove his mettle with Surrey’s 2nd XI. His exceptional performances in the second team led to his inclusion in Surrey’s first team, where he astounded both teammates and opponents with his skill and determination.

Despite having a relatively short career thus far, Moriarty has already left a lasting impression with his performances. His ability to extract turn and accuracy as a spinner has troubled many batsmen, making him a key asset for Surrey. His commitment to continuous improvement and his unwavering dedication to the sport are qualities that set him apart from his peers.

Looking ahead, Moriarty’s future appears bright. With his natural talent and hunger for success, it is certain that he will be a prominent name in English cricket for years to come. As he continues to develop his skills and gain valuable experience, cricket enthusiasts eagerly await the day when Moriarty’s name becomes synonymous with excellence and triumph.
