Bio

Left-arm opening bowler Gary Putland is known as The Iceman after his final-over heroics in the 2011-12 Ryobi Cup final against Tasmania guided South Australia to their first domestic title in 25 years.

With Tasmania only three wickets down and needing five runs to win, Putland dismissed George Bailey before restricting the Tigers to just four runs to see South Australia claim the title as the highest-ranked team.

Putland has also made an impression in Sheffield Shield cricket, highlighted by his match haul of 12-92 at the start of the 2012-13 season against Victoria, before he was struck down by injury.

Having made his one-day debut for South Australia in 2005 in a side that included Greg Blewett and Matthew Elliott, it took Putland another five years until he made his first-class debut.


Putland's inauspicious BBL start

Adelaide Strikers welcomed Gary Putland back from injury for the biggest game of their season - but his first ball in BBL|05 wasn't exactly one he'll want to remember

Blues restricted to 9-266

Steve Smith made 72 but New South Wales were kept to 9-266 by the Redbacks, thanks to two wickets each to Adam Zampa and Gary Putland, and some excellent fielding from Sam Raphael (restrictions apply)


SA cruise against Blues

NSW meekly collapsed on day three to all but hand South Australia top spot in the Bupa Sheffield Shield, but they insist they can produce a miracle win.
