Ashton moved to Western Australia for the 2012-13 season, where he was awarded a contract with the WA Men's Team.
The left-arm spinner made his First-Class debut for WA in a Sheffield Shield match against New South Wales in January 2013.
He emerged as a major prospect in the latter half of his first year in WA, before winning a call-up to the Australia squad during the 2013 Ashes where he made a memorable 98 on debut.
Ashton took 19 wickets in five Sheffield Shield matches and five wickets in two one-day cup games in 2012-13, before earning the call-up.
He made his One Day International debut against England on 8 September 201 and made his Twenty20 International debut for Australia against South Africa on 6 March 2016.
In 2017 Ashton was recalled to the Australian test side for their tour of Bangladesh, and in the first test match, took five wickets in total.
In the first T20I match against South Africa, he became the second bowler for Australia, and 13th overall, to take a hat-trick in a T20I match. He finished the match with figures of 5-24 from his four overs, his first five-wicket haul in a T20I match.
