“The Duke” is one of Australia’s most popular cricketers amongst other players due to his character, talent and ability to influence games. His breakthrough season came in 2009-10 when he was Victoria’s leading wicket-taker in all three competitions and played in the final in all three formats. Not surprisingly, he was named the Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year. In addition to his 36 Shield wickets he contributed 446 runs at 37.16.
He made his One Day and T20 International debuts in 2010 and his Test debut in 2012 claiming the wicket of AB De Villiers. He was the second leading wicket taker in One Day International cricket in 2016. He will captain the Melbourne Stars for the 2017/18 summer.
