Profile

Probably no player has ever debuted for his state against such exalted opposition as Rob Quiney did in October 2005. He found himself called in to the Victoria team for the warm-up game against the ICC World XI at Melbourne's Junction Oval. He faced up to a bowling attack that featured Shoaib Akhtar, Shaun Pollock, Muttiah Muralitharan, Daniel Vettori and Makhaya Ntini. Quiney can brag that none of them dismissed him but he has little else to boast about from that match, as he was run out for 3. He made his name in 2006-07 by hammering 89 from 57 balls against New South Wales, and facing Brett Lee for the first time in his career Quiney repeated hooked and pulled him for boundaries. He initially earned recognition in the shorter formats and in 2009 won a Rajasthan Royals contract and a call-up to Australia's Twenty20 squad that took on New Zealand, but he couldn't force his way into the starting XI.
