Bio

Having taken six wickets on Test debut in 2013, James Faulkner's star continued to rise with some memorable ODI performances in the 2013-14 season.

First came his incredible rear-guard innings of 64 from just 29 balls against India that propelled Australia to an unlikely victory in Mohali.

He plundered his maiden international century just two weeks later, an innings of 116 from 73 balls in a losing cause in Bangalore.

Then there were his last-over heroics against England at the Gabba, where he hit three consecutive boundaries off the bowling of Tim Bresnan to secure victory with three balls to spare.

With all the skills and a fiery attitude to match, Faulkner is arguably one of the most exciting prospects in Australian cricket.
