Profile

Michael Klinger has spent an entire career awaiting the Australia call that has never quite come. He has been mentioned in despatches more than once, but Australia have always opted for the younger, or the more fashionable, player. Through it all, Klinger has just kept scoring runs., A technically-correct top-order batsman with a penchant for the front foot, and who made his first-class debut in the 1990s, he has adapted to changing teams, formats and roles, and shown an aptitude for captaincy.
