Profile

James Hopes was earmarked for higher honours in national youth teams, but took a few years to settle once graduating to the first-class level. Over the past four seasons he has been a regular with the limited-overs squads, chipping in as an evenly balanced allrounder. A brisk medium-pacer who shapes the ball, he is also an aggressive and versatile batsman who has been used at the top and lower reaches of the order. Throughout his career he has had to fight for international recognition, battling with Shane Watson, Andrew Symonds, Cameron White and Steven Smith for game time.
