Profile

Daniel Worrall might be nicknamed "Franky" after the former West Indies captain, but it is another Caribbean legend who he more resembles on the field. Worrall's unusual angled run-up is reminiscent of that of Malcolm Marshall, although he cannot quite boast the same sheer pace and ferocity. Worrall explained the run-up developed from his childhood days playing cricket in the backyard, where an inconvenient tree meant that a long approach to the crease prevented a straight-on run-up. Whatever the case, it works for Worrall, who broke into state cricket in 2012-13 after moving from Melbourne to Adelaide. In 2015-16 he was second on the Sheffield Shield wicket tally with 44 victims at 26.18, including six first-innings wickets in the final for South Australia against his home state of Victoria. That led to a call-up into the Australia A squad for a winter series against South Africa A and India A in 2016. Solid performances saw him rushed on a plane to South Africa where he made his ODI debut against Ireland and he played two more ODIs against South Africa. However, injuries have plagued him since then. A stint with Gloucestershire in 2018 was cut short by a foot fracture. He took a career-best 10 for 148 against WA on his Shield return in 2018-19 but broke down again with a back injury. He returned to the BBL and took 4 for 23 in the semi-final for the Melbourne Stars before further hamstring and back injuries sidelined him in 2019.
