Profile

Simon Cook has had a dream start to his international career. He came in as a replacment for Glenn McGrath for the 2nd test against New Zealand. He took 7 wickets in his first game, including a career best 5/39 in the second innings. However, Cook has had a hard struggle to get into even the New South Wales side this year. He broke his ankle bowling in his first year for the Blues, and has found it very difficult to recover. He has always been underrated, some Shield coaches believing he isn't even a player up to First Class standard. However Cook has proved them wrong in emphatic style. (Barry Anderson , Dec 1997)
