Profile

The fast bowler Gerard Denton continued the theme of his career during 2007-08: consistently dangerous but often sidelined. After the first half of the Pura Cup campaign he was the competition's leading wicket-taker with 28 victims at 16.10 from five games. His 6 for 40 for Victoria against his former side Tasmania was the standout effort but ankle problems prevented him repeating the dose and he missed the second half of the season. The story had been similar the previous summer. Two Pura Cup hauls of six wickets were the highlights of that injury-interrupted season, when he again sat out half the matches due to shin splints. That campaign brought his career-best 6 for 31 against South Australia in Adelaide, when his last three wickets came within seven deliveries and Victoria won with nine balls to spare. He followed up a month later with 6 for 62 against Queensland before the injury struck. Victoria missed him in their 2007-08 Pura Cup final loss and during the off-season they discovered they would be without him permanently as he decided to return to Tasmania. Denton had also been absent in the 2005-06 decider, this time due to appendicitis, when Queensland posted 6 for 900 declared. It was a disappointing end to his best Pura Cup campaign - he topped the state's wicket list with 33 at 28.15, proving himself a worthy addition to the squad after a first year that was disrupted by a foot stress fracture.
