Profile

Doug Bollinger is a left-arm fast bowler loaded with character more suited to cold beer than high-quality champagne. Early in his maiden Test spell on his SCG home ground, having promised to give 150,000%, he waved animatedly at Ricky Ponting to demand a short-leg. The crowd cheered every grimace throughout a welcome that included two wickets - and has not stopped yelling. He left that match with an enhanced reputation and the nickname "Doug the rug" after receiving some help in manufacturing golden locks from a previously barren crown.
