Bio

After a long apprenticeship in domestic cricket, George Bailey has finally been rewarded with regular international appearances since his debut in 2012.

Bailey's rapid rise to the captaincy in limited-overs cricket speaks volumes of his leadership ability and popularity in the Australian dressing-room.

While his Test career has stalled following a disappointing 2013-14 Ashes campaign with the bat, he remains a crucial component of Australia's one-day international at Twenty20 line-ups.

Despite a disappointing Test series against England, the 28 runs he smashed off one Jimmy Anderson over in Perth was one of the highlights of a memorable summer for the Aussies.

His Test debut came on the back of his extraordinary ODI performance against India in 2013, where he plundered 478 runs at an average of 95.60 and jumped to No.2 in the world rankings.
