Profile

Craig Philipson entered state cricket in a flurry by crafting a fine 110 on debut against Tasmania. Despite such a strong start in both competitions - he made 48 in his opening ING Cup encounter - he has not managed to nail down a full-time spot with the Bulls and was even put on the transfer list at the end of 2007-08. He played all ten FR Cup matches that season, but his topping of the run-list with 217 could not save him. The one-day arena suits Philipson, a powerful and attacking right-hander, more than first-class competition, and he averaged in the mid-30s over his first 48 limited-overs games.
