Profile

A left-arm fast bowler more suited to cold beer than high-quality champagne, Doug Bollinger added plenty of character to Australia's Test side during his two years around the group in 2009 and 2010. Nicknamed "Doug the Rug", after receiving some help in manufacturing hair from a previously barren crown, Bollinger promised to give 150,000% on his Test debut at his SCG home ground. Over the next two years, Bollinger was a semi-regular member of the side and picked up 50 Test wickets, irritating opposing batsmen with his angle and swing. Bollinger is known for making team-mates laugh, often on purpose, but at times by accident as well, as when he took a wicket in a Test against New Zealand and grabbed his shirt, wanting to kiss the national coat of arms, but slobbered on the sponsor's beer logo instead.
