Nathan Wade Bracken

03 August, 2006

The search for a Test-class left-armer, a universal pursuit, first led Australia to Nathan Bracken. Tall and slim like Bruce Reid, Bracken bowls a full length, moves the ball both ways in the air and off the seam and fitted easily into Australia's rampant

one-day squad in 2000-01. He has also been instrumental in resuscitating New South Wales's fortunes, including a first-innings 6 for 27 in their 2004-05 final win over Queensland and 7 for 4 earlier that season when South Australia fell for 29 at the SCG. A shoulder injury cut short his maiden Ashes tour in 2001 after just two matches, but after a spell on the sidelines he returned to the national colours during the 2003 World Cup, when Jason Gillespie dropped out with a heel injury.

His Test debut finally came in 2003-04, but in three outings against the powerful Indian batting line-up he failed to make real inroads. In the spring of 2004 he was omitted from Cricket Australia's list of centrally-contracted players, but returned to the ODI scene for the 2005 Super Series and became a regular in green and gold. However, he played only two Tests last summer and faces a head-to-head battle with Mitchell Johnson for the position as the country's No. 1 left-armer.
