Cricketer James Faulkner, one of our regular.

Thank you James Faulkner for visiting us.

James Faulkner is a bowling allrounder who has also established a reputation as Australia's finisher with the bat in limited-overs chases. His cool head under pressure has won matches for Australia many times, and notably he was Man of the Match in the 2015 World Cup final triumph over New Zealand.

His variations - slow balls and cutters especially - make him a dangerous bowler in the short forms.

Faulkner made his Test debut in the dead rubber at The Oval on the 2013 Ashes tour and claimed six wickets. At domestic level, Faulkner was Tasmania's best player during a period of great success for the state. His breakout season in 2010-11 - he collected 36 Sheffield Shield wickets at 17.72 - coincided with the Tigers winning the Shield for the second time.

His importance for Tasmania during those three seasons cannot be underestimated and in 2012-13 he won his third consecutive Ricky Ponting Medal as Tasmania's best player.
