Profile

A powerful left-handed batsman and medium-pace bowler, Mark Cosgrove’s career went from good to bad in just a matter of months in 2005.

Having made his first-class debut with South Australia at 18, Cosgrove was named Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year early in 2005, before he was dropped from the Redbacks squad over .concerns about his weight. He bounced back quickly, hitting 736 runs at 66.90 in the Pura Cup and 591 at 73.87 in the one-day competition to earn a call-up to Australia’s ODI side.

Cosgrove suffered another setback in 2007 when he was kicked out of Cricket Australia’s Centre of Excellence for disciplinary reasons and then, despite good performances for both the Redbacks and Glamorgan in English county cricket, he wasn’t offered a contract with South Australia in 2010 due to more concerns about his weight.

He responded by plundering a competition high 806 runs as his new state Tasmania won the Sheffield Shield title in 2010-11 and then scored 784 runs two seasons later as the Tigers again won the title.

Known as ‘Mini Boof’ for his likeness to Darren Lehmann, Cosgrove then knocked back a two-year contract extension from Tasmania after he decided to return to South Australia for the 2014-15 season
