Profile

Chris Simpson was promoted to Queensland captain when Jimmy Maher retired before the final Pura Cup game of 2007-08 and was awarded the role full-time. While the Bulls won the FR Cup and reached the Sheffield Shield final in his first full summer, it was a difficult campaign for Simpson, who struggled for individual impact. An allrounder who bowls offspin and bats in the middle or lower order, Simpson faced a tough assignment to perform all his duties to a suitable standard, but impressed team officials with the way he led.
