After initially starting out in Western Australia, Marcus Stoinis came across to Victoria at the start of last season.
Opening the batting in his domestic one-day debut, Stoinis made a handy 22 against the Queensland Bulls.
He followed that up with scores of 4 and 21 against them in the Bupa Sheffield Shield later that week.
Stoinis, who was struggling to establish himself as a top-order batsman or a pace bowler, struggled for any meaningful game time before deciding to make the switch to the east coast.
The 2012 off season saw him pick up a hat-trick in the Northampton Premier League, before linking up with the Bushrangers.
A couple of games in the Futures League did nothing to enhance his batting credentials, although he did pick up three wickets against the ACT.
The 23 year old returned to Perth for the KFC T20 Big Bash League, where he featured in three of their matches.
In a very quiet campaign, the opener made nine against the Melbourne Stars, before scoring just one in the final.
A half century against the English Lions preceded two handy contributions in his first Shield game for the Bushrangers.
In a team of champions, Stoinis will need stellar results in the Futures League if he wants to permanently break into the first XI.
A move down the order might do him a world of good, with the youngster likely to excel against the older ball. His bowling has also been underused, so it might be worth trying him as an all-rounder rather than a specialist batsman.
