A very capable all-rounder, Ian Hewett started his interstate career as a teenager back in the 1995-96 season. His entry to domestic cricket was not without controversy; following his opening first-class match, it became public that Umpires Hair and Stratford had raised doubts over the legitimacy of his bowling action in their official reports from the game. He has yet to carve a permanent niche for himself in Victorian teams in either four-day or limited-overs cricket, but nonetheless remains a highly regarded member of the state's squad. His bowling - which takes the form of accurate and brisk left arm medium pace - is probably the slightly stronger facet of his game, though he is also a very useful left handed batsman capable of hitting the ball with authority to all parts of the wicket. Tall and relatively lightly built, he was raised in Melbourne, was a member of the state's under-17 and under-19 sides, and was a full-time scholar at the Australian Cricket Academy in 1995.
