Michael Neser looms as one of the most exciting players coming through the Queensland ranks.
The 23 year old has been clocked at nearly 150 km/h, and is no mug with the bat. In fact, the express bowler can classify himself as an all-rounder, with batting averages over 20 in all three forms of the game.
Injuries have curtailed the early part of his career, with Neser restricted to just a handful of games in each of his first three seasons.
Neser started the season with two wickets against the Blues in Canberra, before taking two wickets for the Adelaide Strikers from his three Big Bash appearances.
A crucial 77 against the Warriors changed the momentum of their Shield encounter, handing the Bulls a vital 120 run win.
Despite playing just one first-class match last season, Neser was included in the squad for the final against the Tigers.
The paceman picked up 2/71 and 2/43 as the match ended in a draw.
Impressive performances for the Brisbane Heat and the Strikers saw Neser pick up a surprising contract with the Kings XI Punjab in the IPL.
In his only game for the tournament, the Queenslander was brutalised by the likes of Chris Gayle, Cheteshwar Pujara and AB de Villiers.
Neser finished with 0/62 from his four overs, but watched on as a 38 ball century from David Miller guided his side to a shock victory.
