Cameron is a right-handed batter and right arm leg spin bowler. He became the youngest double-centurion in Durham’s history when, at 21, he struck 224 against Leicestershire. Having batted for more than eight hours and faced 408 balls, his epic innings were the centrepiece of an impressive 2017 season. Cameron played for the first team in all three competitions, making his maiden first-class century against Northamptonshire.
Cameron’s drive for a big score was seen once again late in the 2018 Championship when he took 160 off a high-class Sussex attack in a match where no other batsman scored more than 47.
In 2019 he was named in a 30-man training squad for the United States cricket team.
Born in San Francisco, raised between the south-west of England and Western Australia, and now residing in Durham, Cameron has had a peripatetic life. Despite early childhood dreams centred around space travel, chess and football, cricket has since been his greatest passion.
Outside of cricket, Cameron enjoys a variety of interests, ranging from writing and history to an up-and-coming silent disco business. Since studying history at Durham University, he has kept up with his writing, completing a number of articles for the Durham Cricket website. He one day hopes to write a historical novel.
In the most random of off-field pursuits, Cameron co-founded an events business called Encasa Events, during one of a number of quarantines in June 2020. So far, Encasa has focussed on hiring out silent disco equipment to people during lockdown, and hopes to bring more dance moves to the world moving forward.
