Profile

What is it with tall NSW fast bowlers starting their careers as wicketkeepers? Mitchell Starc spent most of his childhood days behind the stumps, while Trent Copeland donned the gloves until he was almost 20 years old.

After growing up in Bathurst, Copeland moved to Sydney where he dominated the grade competition with St George.

A glut of wickets saw him debut for NSW in the Bupa Sheffield Shield against Queensland in early 2010.

The match couldn’t have gone any better for the debutant, with Copeland snaring a ten-for, including eight wickets in the first innings.

He would finish the season with 35 scalps from just five appearances, making him the third leading wicket taker in the competition.

A further 45 victims in 2010/11 saw him top the charts, subsequently earning him a call-up to tour Sri Lanka.

Copeland’s meteoric rise was unprecedented, especially considering he had only started bowling a few seasons prior.

His stump to stump line was a key reason behind his selection given the nature of sub-continental pitches.

After being hit for four with his first delivery in Test cricket, Copeland responded immediately, removing Dilshan next ball.

Copeland took a further five wickets in the three match series, but hasn’t been selected since.

His steep bounce and nagging length has worked well in the limited-overs arena, with Copeland bagging a pair of five wicket hauls in his 21 game career.
