Profile

Xavier Doherty has been one of the most consistent State players in the past decade, which has seen him play a stack of international matches for Australia as well.

Bowling his left-arm orthodox, Doherty is not known for a great deal of flight and turn. However, he has always been an economical bowler, especially in limited overs cricket.

In the 2007/08 season, Doherty snared 4/18 to help guide the Tasmania Tigers to the ODD title. It capped off an excellent year for the spinner, who finished the tournament as the equal leading wicket taker.

Continued success at state level saw Doherty earn his first cap for Australia in an ODI against Sri Lanka. Despite losing the match, the Tasmanian impressed many by taking 4/46 on debut.

Later that year, Doherty played his first two Test matches in the Ashes defeat to England. He managed to take three wickets in a series where wickets were hard to come by for all Australian bowlers.

Due to a lack of wickets in First Class cricket, Doherty was not selected again until the 2013 tour of India. He picked up the last three wickets of India’s only innings, as the hosts won by an innings and 135 runs.

Doherty managed just one wicket in Mohali as the Indians once again coasted to victory.

The Tasmanian tweaker is a valued member of Australia’s limited overs sides. Doherty has played 45 ODI’s for the country, picking up 47 wickets along the way. His tight bowling has been advantageous during the middle overs, where opposition batsmen have struggled to put him away.

Although he didn’t take too many wickets in the 2013 season, he did manage to save his best for the Hobart faithful with three Sri Lankans scalps.

Doherty has also played a handful of matches at T20 level for Australia and the Hobart Hurricanes.

His form in last year’s KFC T20 Big Bash League was mixed, but he certainly unleashed on the hapless Sydney Thunder. Doherty continued the trend of Hurricanes’ players snaring hat-tricks when he tore through the Thunder’s middle-order to spark a match winning collapse.
