Profile

After consecutive lean seasons for his native New South Wales, Aaron O'Brien signed with South Australia for 2008-09 and the fresh start reignited a promising career. His move west was rewarded with his most consistent season in years. He managed 392 runs in nine Sheffield Shield matches - though a top score of 63 was disappointing - as well as appearances in all one-day games. In 2009-10 he averaged around 30 with the bat in the Sheffield Shield and FR Cup, and while his 14 first-class wickets came at 63, he was more effective in the 50-over format with 12 at 31. His seven Twenty20 victims came every 9.14 runs.
