Bio

A clever seam bowler who has produced his best in limited overs cricket, Clint McKay has been such a vital part of Australia’s 50-over side that he was named ODI Player of the Year in 2013.

He picked up the wicket of Sachin Tendulkar on ODI debut in 2009 before he made his Test debut six weeks later, against West Indies in Perth.

He then became a regular in the ODI side for several years, although he missed the 2011 World Cup due to a foot injury, and took a hat-trick against England in 2013.

McKay has failed to have the same impact in first-class and Twenty20 cricket, although he did take 33 wickets as Victoria won the Sheffield Shield title in 2008-09.
