Profile

In Test cricket, there are very few bowlers who have taken eight or more wickets in an innings. Jason Krejza is one of them. After a poor first outing for an Australian touring team, in which he gave up 199 runs in 31 overs, Krejza's chances of playing a Test on the 2008-09 tour of India seemed bleak. But when he was finally picked ahead of Stuart Clark for the deciding Test in Nagpur, Krejza collected staggering debut innings figures of 8 for 215. It was a bittersweet debut, however, as Krejza also conceded more runs than anyone in their maiden Test performance. He went on to finish with 12 victims for the game; of Australian players only Bob Massie ended his debut Test with better figures.
