Profile

After debuting for the Blues in 2008, Usman Khawaja decided to make the move north at the start of the 2012/13 season.

His time in New South Wales had been nothing short of exemplary. Khawaja became the first player in state history to hit back to back double-centuries in the Futures League during his debut season.

The following year saw him excel in the Sheffield Shield, hitting nearly 700 runs. His impressive haul included three centuries.

Prolonged form in the Baggy Blue earned him a spot in the dead-rubber 5th Ashes Test in 2010/11 against the English.

Replacing the injured Ricky Ponting, Khawaja added 37 and 21 at the SCG.

The stylish left-hander reached double-figures in each of his first eight innings, but only passed fifty once.

After being dumped from the team at the end of 2011, the first drop batsman played one more season in Sydney, before linking up with the Bulls.

His form in the early part of the season was prolific, with Khawaja hitting 88 against the Redbacks, a pair of fifties against the Blues and a scintillating 138 in Hobart.

Three half-centuries in five Ryobi Cup fixtures confirmed his desire to return to the international arena.

Khawaja got his chance in the limited-overs series with Sri Lanka and the West Indies, but only managed 14 runs in his three at bats.

Although not spectacular, Khawaja did enough for Australia A to warrant a recall to the Test side for the tour of England.

He made a fighting 54 at Lord’s, but has struggled against Graeme Swann.
