Profile

Not to be confused with the jeweller, Michael Hill has established himself at the top of the Victorian batting line-up.

His ODD debut was rather inauspicious; he didn’t get a chance to bat or bowl against Queensland.

However, since then, he has been a steadying influence in a flashy top-order. Usually coming in at first drop, Hill has managed an average of exactly 30 in his 22 appearances.

2012/13 was his finest season in the 50 over game, as he struck an unbeaten 45 against the English Lions, as well as his first career half-century against the Bulls.

His 88 against Queensland was a great knock, but he will need a few more big scores if he wants to stay in the competitive first XI.

Since making his first-class debut in 2010, Hill has struck 802 runs from 17 matches.

It didn’t take long for him to make a name for himself with a magnificent 105* against England on their 2010 tour down under. The only downside was that he was rather embarrassingly dismissed by Andrew Strauss in the second dig.

After a quiet start to 2012/13, Hill enjoyed a purple patch as most players recovered from their New Year’s hangover.

He managed 54 against the Redbacks in Adelaide, before hitting a career best 144 against the Bulls at the MCG.

Averaging just under 30 in first-class cricket is dangerous, especially when your last four scores were 1, 6, 4 and 5.

The former Australian under-19 skipper has plenty of potential, but must demonstrate it if he wants to cement his spot in the side.
