Profile

A left-arm spinner who is at his best in limited-overs cricket, Xavier Doherty has generally been Australia's first-choice slow bowler in the ODI outfit since he took four wickets on debut against Sri Lanka in November 2010. That was also the month that Doherty was handed a baggy green for the first time and he struggled for impact in the two Ashes Tests he played at the Gabba and Adelaide Oval, collecting three wickets for 306 runs. It was nearly two and a half years until he was given another chance at Test cricket, on Australia's disastrous tour of India in early 2013, and again his lack of penetration was notable. In Hyderabad and Mohali he took a combined 4 for 242 and while he often bowled tight, he pitched the ball too full and imparted too little turn to be a true Test weapon. In one-day internationals his results have been stronger and the Australians missed him at the 2011 World Cup on the subcontinent, when a back injury kept him from touring. A steady, accurate and intelligent bowler who knows his game well, Doherty has been part of the domestic scene in Australia for more than a decade.
