Profile

An allrounder whose sheer consistency has clearly bracketed him among the best-performing players in the first-class arena in Australia over the last decade, Shaun Young continues to be one of Tasmania's most reliable cricketers. Stockily built, the doughty Young's strength is his batting. Although he is not the most technically correct player, he places a high price on his wicket, has compiled a number of great first-class innings and has often been the lynchpin of defiant Tasmanian middle and late order performances. While it looks relatively innocuous, his medium pace bowling has also proved remarkably effective throughout his career. In the main, this success has been due to his ability to produce deceptive changes of pace and to swing the ball both ways. He also possesses an inherent capacity to frustrate batsmen with the tidiness of his line and length and his penchant for bowling tight, competitive spells over sustained periods.
