Profile

Dominic Thornely was discussed as a possible Test player for the 2005 Ashes following a dramatic season of 1065 first-class runs, four centuries, five fifties and an average of 62.65. New South Wales needed someone to attempt to fill the massive holes left by the Waugh brothers, Michael Slater and Michael Bevan, who departed for retirement or Tasmania the previous off-season, and Thornely stepped in with aggressive responsibility to be a crucial factor in the Pura Cup-winning campaign. The highlight of the starry-eyed season was undoubtedly the 261 against Western Australia at the SCG and beating David Hookes' record for first-class sixes with 11. The innings also included a barely believable 219-run stand for the last wicket with Stuart MacGill, who scored 27 as they turned from trouble to triumph.
