At the end of the 2006–07 season, Hastings was recruited from New South Wales, where he had represented the state in under-age and Second XI teams. He impressed with his first one-day games for Victoria and grabbed three wickets in six deliveries on debut in 2007–08, when he was asked to bowl at the death against Queensland. His first-class debut, against the touring Indian national team, was ruined by rain. The following January, he required surgery to have a pin inserted in a fractured finger. Hastings was given three more first-class opportunities in 2008–09, taking 16 wickets at 18.56, including 5 for 61 against his home state.
He currently plays for the Melbourne Stars, a Twenty20 team. He is contracted to play for English county side Durham for the 2016 English season. He won the Big Bash Smash for the longest six of the competition
In the players auction for the 2014 IPL, he was bought by Chennai Super Kings for Rs. 50 lakhs (Rs. 5 million).
After a series of injuries to several senior Australian pacemen, Hastings was called into the ODI team to tour India in October 2010. He made his ODI debut against India in Visakhapatnam in October 2010. He did not bat and took 2/44 from ten overs. He removed centurion Virat Kohli and then bowled captain MS Dhoni for a duck later in the same over. He was awarded the Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year at the Allan Border Medal ceremony by the CA in 2010.
On 30 November 2012, Hastings made his début as Australia's 430th Test Cricketer against South Africa at the WACA.
In 2015, after a series of injuries to several senior Australian pacemen again, Hastings was called into the ODI team, this time as India tours in Australia in January 2016.
In 2018, however, he has a career-threatening health issue, where he coughs out blood only while bowling. As such, he did not play cricket in 2018.
