Carey initially made his debut as a specialist top-order batsman in 2013, but was unsuccessful and dropped. He moved down the batting order and became a wicket-keeper.
As a teenager, Carey played both Australian rules football and cricket, and as he got older, he started to play football at a higher level, playing for Glenelg in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL) reserves competition alongside adults by the time he was 15.
In 2008, Carey was included in South Australia’s squad for the 2008 AFL Under 18 Championships, but he did not play any game.
He was also in the AIS/AFL Academy intake for 2008. He continued to advance in 2009 and played for South Australia in the 2009 AFL Under 18 Championships in addition to winning the SANFL reserves premiership with Glenelg.

Australia wicketkeeper Alex Carey made a splash in Pakistan but not in the way he would have hoped, as he seemingly fell into the pool at the team hotel in Karachi.
Footage posted on Instagram by Australia’s Test captain Pat Cummins shows Carey slipping and toppling into the pool, much to delight of his teammates.
To make matters worse for the 30-year-old, his backpack was open when he fell into the water and contained his phone.
He then swiftly shared the incident on social media, leaving current and former Australia players in hysterics.
‘Phone can last 29 mins in the water Kez … you’re sweet,’ Carey’s teammate Glenn Maxwell commented.
Former Aussie quick Brett Lee, meanwhile, joked Carey’s phone ‘will be ringing wet’.
The unfortunate blooper comes at the end of a difficult few days for Carey, who became the first Australian wicket-keeper to fail to take a catch or a stumping in a Test in 13 years in the opening Test of the series against Pakistan in Rawalpindi.
The last gloveman to achieve the unwanted feat while wearing the Baggy Green was Brad Haddin against South Africa in January 2009.

At the domestic level, she plays in the Women’s National Cricket League for Tasmania and in the Women’s Big Bash League for the Hobart Hurricanes.

Carey was a member of the victorious Southern Stars squad that won the 2012 ICC World Twenty20 title in Sri Lanka. Carey was part of two ICC World Twenty20 in 2012 and in 2016.
She made her Women’s One Day International cricket (WODI) debut for Australia Women against India Women on 12 March 2018.
Although she bowled well, and was praised by the team’s coach, Matthew Mott, as having had “a fabulous debut”, she did not take any wickets in her 10 overs, and was not required to bat.
Her teammate Alyssa Healy commented that “… it was probably one of the most unlucky debuts I’ve ever seen.”
