Aneurin Donald is a right-hand batsman and occasional wicket-keeper.
He was born in Swansea, Glamorgan and has represented Hampshire in all formats since joining the Club in 2018.
Having spent his youth as part of Glamorgan’s age-group sides, he made his First-Class debut for the Welsh side in 2014, followed by first limited-overs appearances the following year.
His main highlight for the county was a stunning maiden First-Class century which saw him strike an astonishing 234 off just 136 balls – an innings which equalled the record for the fastest double-century in First-Class cricket.
After making the switch to the south coast – joining several of his former England U19 teammates – Donald helped Hampshire secure a third-place County Championship finish and a Lord's final in his first full season, scoring 888 runs across all formats along the way, including a magnificent 173 off 144 balls against Warwickshire in July.
The right-hander continued to show his ability to be destructive with the bat in limited-overs action, featuring in all Vitality Blast games in 2019 registering a strike-rate of 138.10, whilst also contributing to Hampshire’s successful 50-over campaign in which the side reached a second successive List A final.
A serious achilles injury suffered in December 2019 combined with the COVID-19 pandemic caused Donald to sit out the truncated 2020 season.
