Profile

Doug Bollinger is the sort of player every side needs. He has the ability to rev his teammates up when the going is tough, and he also creates a buzz around the ground whenever he gets the ball in his hands.

The highly animated fast bowler is one of the veterans in an otherwise youthful NSW Blues squad.

His form in domestic cricket has generally been first-rate. He has taken hat-tricks in both the Shield and the ING Cup, was the leading wicket taker in 2007/08, and has taken several 10 wicket hauls in the four day arena.

He proved last year that he was anything but a spent force, with four wickets in each innings against South Australia.

Bollinger made his Test debut back in 2009, and immediately enjoyed success with eight wickets against the West Indies in Perth.

Twelve wickets in the series against Pakistan followed, before the left-arm quick bagged another dozen victims in the two Test series in New Zealand.

The excitable quick famously kissed the VB logo on his shirt; although he claims to have been aiming for the Australian badge!

Thankfully for him, fitness isn’t a huge issue in the white ball game. Bollinger managed 62 wickets in his 39 game ODI career, including five-fors against Pakistan and India.

A consistent performer for the Hobart Hurricanes and the Chennai Super Kings, Bollinger has taken 81 wickets in t20 cricket.

His economy rate has been his greatest asset, with the opening bowler excelling on the drier Indian wickets.
