Profile

Mark Cosgrove would have loved nothing more than to be judged on his weight of runs, not his weight. But the modern cricket landscape focuses so heavily on fitness that Cosgrove never added to the three one-day internationals he played in 2006. By then, he was already a big man with an even larger reputation. A hard-hitting batsman known for his punishment of anything outside off from the fast men, Cosgrove made his first-class debut at 18 and was named the Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year in 2005. Nicknamed "Baby Boof" in those days, Cosgrove did his best to upstage his South Australia team-mate Darren Lehmann during a brilliant 2005-06 that began with a month-long suspension for returning unfit from a club stint in England. South Australia's ultimatum was lose five kilograms or the state contract. His response was to strike 736 runs at 66.90 in the Pura Cup and 591 at 73.87 in the one-day competition, which led to his ODI call-up. On debut against Bangladesh, Cosgrove opened and made 74 from 69 balls, but his stint in the team was short-lived.
