Profile

After battling injuries, poor form and switching states, the planets finally aligned for Beau Casson in 2007-08 - then quickly swung him out of orbit. From Test player to struggling state bowler, Casson spiralled out of favour and focus as soon as Jason Krejza, Bryce McGain and Cameron White were picked for the 2008 India tour. His three wickets in the final match of the West Indies series must have felt like they never happened and by the end of 2008-09 Nathan Hauritz, a New South Wales team-mate, was the country's leading spinner. Casson had celebrated seven breakthroughs in eight Pura Cup games at an average of 91.00 and his control left him at the Gabba, where he was ordered out of the attack for delivering high full tosses. In an effort to find some confidence Casson decided to spend the winter trying not to go troppo in Darwin grade cricket.
