A modern-day journeyman, Shane Jurgensen played for Western Australia and Tasmania before winning a place at his home state Queensland. Jurgensen was one of the Bulls' most promising in the early 1990s, but the bowling stocks ahead of him forced him west in 1996 and then south-east for 2001-02. The first season with Tasmania was his best and included a hat-trick against New South Wales and 11 wickets, the most in a final, against the Bulls, who recruited him in 2003. Tall and powerful, Jurgensen, a national under-19 representative from 1993 to 1995, made only four Pura Cup appearances and figured in a handful of one-day games for Queensland before retiring after the 2006-07 season.
After his playing days, his focus shifted to a career in cricket coaching. Jurgensen was appointed New Zealand's bowling coach between 2008 and 2010, while being involved with their high performance programme. In 2011 he was appointed Bangladesh's bowling coach, and he fulfilled that position till he was asked to come on as interim coach. In February 2013 he became Bangladesh's full-time coach, a role he performed till April 2014, when he quit the post.
