Profile

After he led the New South Wales Pura Cup wicket-tally in 2005-06, Grant Lambert continued to be a solid contributor over the next three summers. Three seasons ago he took 15 wickets at 39.6 and made 352 runs at 39.11. There were four half-centuries for Lambert, a Fairfield-Liverpool club opener who usually bats in the middle and lower orders for his state, and a top of 61 in the final loss to Tasmania. Backing up with six first-class appearances in 2007-08, he peaked with 86 against Queensland in a haul of 163 runs and captured nine wickets. His performances impressed South Australia, but they couldn't lure him from Sydney. Lambert provided more value in the last campaign with 20 Sheffield Shield wickets, including a career-best haul of 5 for 74 and another of 5 for 82, which helped put him second on the state list. He also added 254 runs and received a handful of FR Cup opportunities.
