Bio

After limited opportunities in his home state of New South Wales, opener Ed Cowan thrived when he moved to Tasmania in 2009.

 He scored 957 runs at 53.16 in his first season with the Tigers, before representing Australia A and scoring a career-best 225 against Sri Lanka A.

He started the 2011-12 season with four centuries in four games, which earned him a debut in the Boxing Day Test against India.

It wasn’t until the following summer that Cowan scored his maiden Test hundred, an innings of 136 against South Africa at the Gabba that he dedicated to the memory of his mentor Peter Roebuck, before he was dropped during Australia’s unsuccessful Ashes Tour in 2013.

A deep thinker who has a commerce degree from Sydney University, Cowan published a book in 2011, his diary of the 2010-11 domestic season entitled In the Firing Line.
