Bio

After compiling tallies of 733 and 503 runs in his first two first-class seasons with South Australia, Callum Ferguson signalled himself as a player to watch.

Despite briefly losing his place in the Redbacks side in 2006-07, he returned and flourished in the shorter forms of the game to earn his ODI debut in 2009. Ferguson posted five impressive half-centuries in 25 ODIs that year before suffering a serious knee injury while fielding in the 2009 Champions Trophy final, ruling him out of the entire 2009-10 season.

He has struggled to break back into the Australia side since then, despite a handful of impressive performances each season that have reminded selectors of his immense ability.

He has also been an important player for Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League before he moved to Melbourne Renegades for the 2014-15 tournament.

He reminded all of his unquestionable talent in November 2015, when he hammered 213 for South Australia in a Sheffield Shield fixture against Tasmania.

But after averaging an impressive 53.11 from five matches, Ferguson suffered another knee injury and sat out the remainder of the season.

Ferguson came back from another season-long knee injury and performed strongly for the Redbacks before finally making his Test debut against South Africa in Hobart in 2016.
