Profile

A cautious and long-serving opening batsman, Greg Mail's most successful season came in 2003-04 when he hit three centuries and finished with 754 runs. He struggled to keep pace over the next three summers and had a horror 2006-07, when his five Pura Cup games brought 121 runs at 13.44 with a highest score of 27. However, he has consistently starred in Sydney's grade cricket and the 1225 runs he made for Sydney University three years ago broke an 87-year-old club record. In four Pura Cup appearances in 2007-08 he added another century, 125 versus Victoria, and attracted interest from South Australia. However, he decided to stay in Sydney to push for opportunities in the expected absences of Phil Jaques and Simon Katich. He was rewarded with seven appearances but returned only 340 runs at 28.33, with a best of 101 against Victoria at the MCG.
