Hulking all-rounder John Hastings burst onto the one-day international scene last season.
His ability to open the bowling and bat in the middle or lower-orderhas made him a great asset in the shorter forms of the game.
Hastings has played 10 ODIs since making his debut in October 2010, snaring eight wickets in the process. He made the World Cup squad, contributing admirably without playing a game, and toured Bangladesh in April 2011.
Hasting will look to play a major role in the national team this summer, pressing to cement a position in the DEC Victorian Bushrangers Weet-Bix Sheffield Shield side and press claims for a spot in the Australian Test squad.
