Playing Role

Wicketkeeper Batter

Although he played only one Test and one one-day international, New South Welshman Phil Emery was regarded as one of Australia's most dependable wicketkeepers. On the 1994-95 tour of Pakistan, Emery filled in for an injured Ian Healy in the third Test at Lahore and made five dismissals in the second innings; In the same series Emery also played his only ODI.

Emery's career for New South Wales lasted over a decade, a span in which he claimed 337 catches and 47 stumpings from 121 first-class games before retiring in 1999. As a left-handed batsman, he was more than handy and on numerous occasions played vital knocks late in the order. The fact that he scored 17 fifties to go with his one hundred explains why opposition captains valued his wicket highly. Averaging over 26 with the bat, Emery's 3292 first-class runs came batting down the order, often when the Blues needed a contribution the most. One of the high points in a career that saw Emery earn nicknames as varies as "Phillthy", "Slink" and "Fatty", came when he lead his side to their 42nd Shield title in the absence of Mark Taylor in 1993-94.
