Profile

A classy batsman who was identified as an international candidate early in his career, Callum Ferguson had to wait until he was nearly 32 to be called into Australia's Test squad. He had been a semi-regular member of Australia's ODI side during 2009 but a serious knee injury suffered during the Champions Trophy final that year ruled Ferguson out of the entire 2009-10 home summer. Although a few more ODIs followed, he then drifted out of international cricket until called into Australia's squad for the Hobart Test against South Africa in 2016. Ferguson's talent was obvious early in his career - he made his first-class debut at 19 and that summer accumulated 736 Pura Cup runs - but not enough hundreds came over the next few seasons. It was only after he had tasted international cricket that his first-class numbers started to really improve, and in 2014-15 he managed 836 Shield runs including four centuries. His maiden first-class double-century came in November 2015 but another serious knee injury ruled him out of the second half of the summer.
