Profile

Jamie Cox falls into the unfortunate category of outstanding state players who never represented their country. Nobody has appeared in more Pura Cup-Sheffield Shield games than Cox's 161, and he is the competition's second-highest run-scorer behind Darren Lehmann with 10,821. But the closest he came to breaking into Australia's top order was when he was a fringe candidate for the 1997 and 2001 Ashes tours. Instead he drove into state and county attacks while Taylor, Slater, Elliott, Hayden and Langer succeeded above him. Retiring at the end of a disappointing 2005-06, Cox played 264 first-class matches over 19 years for Tasmania and Somerset. Making his debut in 1987-88, Cox was the state's first inductee into the Academy and had his most successful season in 1996-97 when he struck 1349 runs. In 2000-01 he was the Pura Cup Player of the Season and was also making his mark at Somerset, where he captained the county for three northern summers. Somerset won the C&G Trophy under Cox in 2001 and his overall first-class record for the two teams was 18,614 runs at 42.69.
