Benton made his first-class debut for South Australia in the final match of the 2014–15 Sheffield Shield season, taking four wickets and scoring 33 not out against Queensland; this earned him his first SACA contract joining the South Australian squad for the 2015–16 season. He played three Sheffield Shield matches in the 2015–16 season, across which he took six wickets, the highlight of his season came in a match against Western Australia. Benton dislocated his shoulder in a fielding mishap on the first day of the match, meaning he was unable to bowl for the rest of the match, with scans showing the damage was severe enough that he couldn't play for the rest of the season. In the last innings South Australia needed seven runs to win and keep their season alive when the ninth wicket fell, Benton was the only player yet to bat. Benton scored the winning runs with a mishit through the slips.

Benton was in South Australia's one-day squad for the first time in the 2016–17 Matador BBQs One-Day Cup, making his List A debut against Western Australia. List of South Australian representative cricketers Nick Benton at ESPNcricinfo
