Agar has taken a total of 34 wickets in his international career thus far at an average of 28.79 and also has scored just above three hundred runs at an average of 20.60.


Background


Agar is of Sri Lankan background and has all the required physical attributes to suggest his left-arm spin will be successful, impressing one and all on his first-class debut for WA against New South Wales at the Blacktown Oval.


An intelligent and prudent young cricketer, Agar has also aspired towards a career in law.


Debut

Rise to Glory

Agar's rise through the ranks continued as he was included in the playing XI for the first Ashes Test at Trent Bridge in 2013.


Low Points

His performances in the BBL have proved that he is also a potent weapon with the white ball.
