Profile

A fast bowler who emerged late onto Australia's domestic scene, Andrew Fekete made his first-class debut at 28 and was called into Australia's Test squad at 30. It was a surprise inclusion for the 2015 tour of Bangladesh, but came after a breakthrough season in which he was the Sheffield Shield's leading fast bowler, with 37 wickets at 24.10, and won the Ricky Ponting Medal as Tasmania's best player for the 2014-15 season. An Australia A tour of India followed in the off-season and the selectors were impressed with Fekete's ability to find reverse swing. It was quite a rise for a man who had played only one one-day game for his home state of Victoria at 26 before heading south in the hope of more opportunities. Six Shield games with Tasmania came in his first summer, but he had still played only 18 in total when he earned his Test call-up.
