Bio

A powerful batsman when he moved to Tasmania from Victoria, Evan Gulbis has turned himself into an allrounder thanks to vast improvement in his bowling.

While he has battled inconsistency for both the Tigers and Hobart Hurricanes, Gulbis has put in several match-winning performances.

He picked up five wickets for the match in the 2012-13 Sheffield Shield final, while he scored an unbeaten 57 and took 4-36 in a one-day match against Western Australia in 2012.

The highlight of his career came in the final Shield match of the 2013-14 season, when he made the highest score by a number 8 batsman in competition history, an innings of 229 from 293 balls against South Australia that included 28 fours and three sixes.

He then took 4-7 with the ball as Tasmania won the match by an innings and 316 runs.

Gulbis was named the Ricky Ponting Medallist in April 2014 after a stellar 2013-14 summer.

Gulbis returned to Victoria for the 2016-17 campaign after being delisted by the Tigers. He secured a spot in the Bushrangers' Matador Cup squad as a replacement for the injured Ian Holland.
