Profile

After a season when he broke through to play his opening first-class games, things started to go wrong for Aaron Bird in 2006-07 and the doubts over his action refused to die. In that summer he could not get back in the Pura Cup side and managed only three wickets at 68 from his six one-day outings. Then he was reported for a suspect bowling action and faced a possible ban from state cricket. He was due to be analysed by the Australian Institute of Sport biomechanics laboratory in Canberra but suffered stress fractures that kept him from bowling and delayed the testing. New South Wales stood by him and he retained his contract for 2007-08 before having his action cleared by the start of the summer.
