Profile

An allrounder who has played for three states, Daniel Christian has spent plenty of time in and around the Australia team without really earning a permanent place. Initially used by New South Wales and South Australia as a top-six batsman whose medium-pace was a handy bowling option, Christian has been viewed since moving to Victoria as more of a bowling allrounder. In 2013-14, his first season with the Bushrangers, Christian's output with bat and ball in the Sheffield Shield was limited, but he was called into Australia's one-day and T20 sides during the summer and made the squad for the 2014 World T20 in Bangladesh. Christian had made his T20 international debut four years earlier and has played for three county T20 teams and two IPL sides - he sold for $900,000 to Deccan Chargers in 2011 - yet his bowling in the shortest format has been mixed. As at May 2014, he was one of T20 cricket's top 50 wicket-takers of all time, but of those 50 his economy rate was the worst, his tendency to deliver a few too many balls in the slot sometimes offsetting his variety and wicket-taking ability.
