Profile

A journeyman fast bowler, Damien Wright has shaken off injuries to be part of three of the past four Sheffield Shield-winning teams. First, there was the history-making maiden title for Tasmania in 2006-07, when Wright bowled them to victory against New South Wales with 5 for 13 on the final day. He had already been instrumental in setting up the one-sided finish - he collected 3 for 38 in the first innings and made vital batting contributions of 67 and 47. The following year he was sidelined by injuries and when he wasn't offered a first-round contract with the Tigers for 2008-09, he moved to Victoria and collected 24 wickets in eight appearances, including the drawn final at home against Queensland. In 2009-10, he spent two months out with a hamstring injury but returned wonderfully, taking 35 Sheffield Shield wickets at 14.34, placing him fourth on the competition tally despite playing only six games. Again, he was part of Victoria's win in the final over Queensland, although he hurt his hamstring during the match and couldn't bowl in the second innings.
