Profile

Six years since his first-class debut, 26-year-old Cullen Bailey remains very much a work in progress. Whether or not can reach the goals first thought within his grasp when he was granted a most optimistic Cricket Australia contract in 2007-08 is open to question, but he has retained his spot in the South Australian squad now under the guidance of the new coach Darren Berry. The past two summers have seen Bailey play a handful of Sheffield Shield matches and plenty of Futures League cricket. He has impressed as much with the bat as the ball, and has also had a hand in the development of the off spinner Nathan Lyon. Bailey spoke eloquently at the funeral of his mentor Terry Jenner in the winter, and must now find a way to develop his game without the advice of a man who did so much to shape Shane Warne's more freakish talent.
