Although he played only one Test and one one-day international, New South Welshman Phil Emery was regarded as one of Australia's most dependable wicketkeepers. On the 1994-95 tour of Pakistan, Emery filled in for an injured Ian Healy in the third Test at Lahore and made five dismissals in the second innings; In the same series Emery also played his only ODI.
Emery's career for New South Wales lasted over a decade, a span in which he
claimed 337 catches and 47 stumpings from 121 first-class games before
retiring in 1999. As a left-handed batsman, he was more than handy and on
numerous occasions played vital knocks late in the order. The
fact that he scored 17 fifties to go with his one hundred explains why
opposition captains valued his wicket highly. Averaging over 26 with the
bat, Emery's 3292 first-class runs came batting down the order, often when
the Blues needed a contribution the most. One of the high points in a career
that saw Emery earn nicknames as varies as "Phillthy", "Slink" and "Fatty",
came when he lead his side to their 42nd Shield title in the absence of Mark
Taylor in 1993-94.
