Marc Ellison Bio

Marc Phillip Ellison is a cricket player who hails from New Zealand. Born on September 25, 1986, Ellison has had an interesting journey in the world of cricket, marked by both highs and lows.

Ellison’s career zenith came in 2006 when he captained the New Zealand Under-19 team to a resounding victory in the World Cup held in Sri Lanka. His team consisted of future cricket stars such as Martin Guptill, Tim Southee, and Colin Munro, making their triumph even more notable. However, Ellison himself did not live up to expectations during the tournament, failing to replicate his domestic Under-19 prowess. He managed to accumulate only 85 runs across six innings as his team fell short against Nepal in the Plate Final.

Despite his underwhelming performance at the Under-19 World Cup, Ellison continued to strive for success in the cricketing landscape. He spent a season playing club cricket in South Australia for Glenelg, where he played a vital role in his team’s triumph in the XXXX Gold One Day competition. He showed his mettle by scoring a quick-fire 61 off just 48 balls in the semi-final against Sturt, followed by an impressive knock of 55 in the final against Kensington at the prestigious Adelaide Oval.

In 2009, Ellison ventured to the United Kingdom to play club cricket for Radcliffe on Trent in the South Nottinghamshire Division A. His contributions were instrumental in helping Radcliffe secure victory in the league, scoring a total of 571 runs at an average of over 40. This outstanding performance resulted in the team’s promotion to the Notts Premier League for the subsequent year.

Despite failing to capitalize on his youthful success in New Zealand, Ellison’s perseverance finally paid off when he made his first-class debut for Ireland at the age of 31 in May 2018. Prior to this, he had put on impressive displays for his club team Civil Service North in Belfast, which caught the attention of the selectors. Ellison was chosen to open the batting for the Northern Knights against Leinster and the North West. Interestingly, he is also set to qualify for selection for the Irish national team in August 2020.

Marc Ellison’s career has been a testament to his resilience and determination. Despite facing setbacks early on, he continued to work hard and make significant contributions in various cricketing contexts. As the journey unfolds, his fans and followers eagerly await to see how he fares on the international stage and how his name will be etched in the annals of cricketing history.
