Strong and burly, Don Nash is a hard working paceman who is slowly gathering an excellent reputation for himself. A little in the mould of former international players Merv Hughes and Ian Austin, the Dubbo-born Nash has a clattering approach to the wicket and doesn't necessarily possess the most rhythmical, natural or classical of actions. What he does have at his disposal, though, is a great temperament; the ability to generate disarming pace and bounce from his thick-set build; and the capacity to maintain an attacking line on and around off stump. Having only made his debut in 1999-2000, Nash is still lacking a little in experience. But the fact that he already has two hauls of seven wickets in an innings to his name at first-class level and that the likes of Glenn McGrath and Brett Lee are almost permanently absent from the Blues' attack these days should ensure that more opportunities come his way. He is also renowned as a ruthlessly strong hitter of the ball in the lower order (he has even scored the second fastest half-century in the history of domestic one-day cricket in Australia) and is a committed and enthusiastic fieldsman. A dark horse for inclusion in an Australian senior team in the near future. (John Polack, August 2001)
