Profile

In an era of academies and youth pathways, the fast bowler Trent Copeland is a throwback. His rise to the national squad came through the more traditional route of dominating at grade level and then starring in state cricket. His New South Wales debut came at the age of 23 and was all the more remarkable because four years prior he was a wicketkeeper-batsman. But the switch to bowling suited the tall Copeland, whose efforts with the St George club led to a stunning entry into state cricket in 2009-10. He finished his maiden first-class season with 35 victims at 17.57 in only five matches, and the 8 for 92 he claimed in his first innings of Sheffield Shield cricket was the second-best haul by a player on first-class debut for New South Wales.
