Bio

A hard-working fast-bowler with a champagne name, Doug Bollinger enjoys a cult following among Australian fans for his loveable attitude and passion.

Bollinger earned his Test debut against South Africa in 2009 after several years of good performances for NSW, including a sterling 2007/08 summer where he took 45 wickets in the Shield despite missing the last few games, including the Final, with injury. 

While Bollinger last represented Australia in 2011, his name still comes up when people talk National selection and when you look at his figures, it is easy to see why. 

The left-arm paceman was the Blues’ leading bowler in the 2015/16 Sheffield Shield, taking 27 wickets at 23.48 in eight matches. 

What those figures don’t show is how well Bollinger performed on flat, lifeless wickets where he toiled away over-after-over for little, or no reward, or his impressive ability to get the ball to reverse swing. 

Bollinger is the only Australian player to take two First Class hat-tricks. The first was against Western Australia in 2007/08, with the second coming against Victoria in 2014/15.
