Originally from the Launceston Cricket Club, James Faulkner played a major part in Australia’s World Cup campaign in 2015.
James made six appearances for the side in the World Cup, taking ten wickets, including 3 in a Man of the Match winning performance in Australia’s successful World Cup Final victory over New Zealand. Faulkner also had a successful season with Tasmania, including a 63no on the final day of the Tigers Shield match at Blundstone Arena to force a draw against Western Australia.
After spending the winter playing county cricket with Lancashire, James is set to have another busy summer in 2015/16 and will be looking to get some good knocks in the Sheffield Shield to press for Test selection.
