Profile

The son of Brendon and nephew of John, Doug Bracewell is a promising fast-bowling allrounder who confirmed his potential in only his third Test, taking 9 for 60 in Hobart to lead New Zealand to their first Test win in Australia in 26 years. His ability was noticed early as he was named, along with his cousin Michael, in New Zealand's squad for the Under-19 World Cup in 2010. While Michael hasn't cemented his Otago spot yet, Doug Bracewell was picked in the national squad at the age of 21, when New Zealand toured Zimbabwe in October 2011. He took four wickets in his first two Twenty20 internationals and three in his first two ODIs, impressing with his pace. A spate of injuries in the New Zealand squad led to a Test debut for Bracewell in Bulawayo, and he took six in that game to make a quick impact. The Hobart performance reinforced the feeling that Bracewell could be a vital cog in New Zealand's bowling wheels for years to come.
