Profile

Andrew Fekete will be hoping he can break into the Tasmanian side more often in the 2012/13 season.

With a healthy competition for places in their pace arsenal, Tasmanian cricket is going strong.

Although he didn’t get much game time last season, Fekete could be helped out by the fact Jackson Bird and James Faulkner are playing for the national side.

The paceman started his career for the Victoria Bushrangers, but it was a long and winding road before he made the first XI.

Injuries and other setbacks saw him play just three second XI matches from 2006-2012. Interestingly, all of those matches were against NSW, where he picked up three wickets.

Fekete finally fought his way into the side for good, and managed to play consistent cricket for the back part of the 2011/12 season.

A tight spell against a Sri Lankan Invitational side was followed by a dominant spell of 3/34 against the Warriors.

Victorian selectors must have liked what they saw, because they handed him a Cap for the clash with South Australia. Fekete picked up both openers, but the Bushrangers still lost by 48 runs. In an inexperienced attack, only he and Cameron White had any success.

Seeking a change of scenery, Fekete made the short trip south at the start of last season. Six wickets from three Futures League matches saw him called up for a rare day/nighter at Bellerive against the Blues.

An unbeaten century to David Dawson guided the visitors to a 37 run victory, but not before Fekete knocked over Tim Cruickshank.

Fekete will have to bide his time in the Seconds when the season starts again in September. However, a prolonged spell of good form could see him back in no time as the Tigers aim to sure up their mantle as the best side in Australian cricket.
