Recruited at the end of season 25, Buchanan was seen immediately as a future star in both formats. The hard-hitting top order batsman had immediate effect with a 25-ball 53 opening the batting in his second 2nd XI match, and quickly settled into this role, getting the team off to a flyer during the fielding restrictions. The then eighteen-year-old Buchanan was a surprising choice as 2nd XI captain midway through season 26, but the following season was his true breakthrough, as he achieved an average of 62 across 17 matches, highlighted by a matchwinning century against Raimon XI.

This catapulted him into the thoughts of selectors for the senior side, although it wasn't until late in season 29 that he finally debuted. Stepping into a transitioning batting order, Buchanan made the best possible start to his career with an astonishing 227 against ThePakiChamps, bringing up his double late on the first day. He played two more games that season without making a substantial impact, but cemented his place in the side the next season as an opening batsman. Playing all 14 games, he broke the 1,000 run mark, averaged just over 40 and hit four hundreds, including another double against Revolution. Most importantly, he was an integral part of a CC Oceania championship team.

Buchanan followed up his breakout season 30 with steady form in the ensuing two seasons, averaging about 40 in each. It was thus a shock when he was placed up for transfer, with the manager citing an excess of top-order players. He was transferred to Deep Sea Lightning, the affiliate of sparring partner Anti-Inertia, for what many considered to be a bargain price of 250,000, and has established himself as a mainstay of their lineup, averaging close to fifty at the club.
