- Test debut v England at Headingley - August 2001.
- ODI debut v Zimbabwe at Melbourne - January 2001.
- Struggled to nail down a regular place in the Australian side after making his debut, and was badly exposed by reverse swing in the 2005 Ashes in England.
- Broke the record for most runs in a Pura Cup season and captained New South Wales to the first-class title in 2007-08 to regain his place in the Test side.
- Cemented his opening spot with solid tours of the West Indies and India in 2008, and was relatively consistent in back-to-back Test series against South Africa.
- Has changed his technique, and now shuffles across his crease to cover his off stump - a ploy which has proved highly successful.
June 2009
