Bio

A tidy wicketkeeper and more-than-useful left-handed batsman, Chris Hartley burst onto the domestic scene in 2003-04 when became the first Queensland player since Matthew Hayden 12 years earlier to celebrate a century on debut.

Arguably his best Shield season came in 2009-10, when picked up 44 dismissals and became just the second wicketkeeper after Brad Haddin to score over 800 runs in a season.

Despite winning multiple awards, including two Queensland Player of the Year trophies, plus Sheffield Shield Player of the Year in 2010, Hartley has been forced to play second fiddle to the likes of Adam Gilchrist and Haddin when it comes to selection for his country.
