PROFILE

Fast bowlers with a really tall frame and express pace are a fragile commodity in international cricket. Despite their obvious talents, they are mostly unable to shine due to injury concerns that hog their careers more often than not. Billy Stanlake is one of that kind – a case of such promise that has hit the injury block. The Queenslander emerged from the Under-19 system with a successful World Cup in 2014.

Stanlake’s efforts saw him making his First-class and List A debut in the 2015-16 season. His ability to bowl really quick from his really tall build made everyone who saw gasp at what he could achieve potentially. It didn’t take long for him to feature in the BBL and made his debut in the same season. Stanlake managed to hurry quite a few batsmen with pace and also caused problems with the extra bounce that he was able to generate.

Australia’s fetish for outright quick bowlers meant that it was only a matter of time before Stanlake got a national call up. He was picked for the ODI series at home against Pakistan in early 2017 and even featured in a T20I against Sri Lanka but fitness issues were evident in the fast bowler. Still very much a raw talent, Stanlake has a bit of polishing to do before he becomes a complete fast bowler. More importantly, he needs to stay injury-free.
