Richard Dawson

Richard Dawson
Right-arm off-spin bowler
Right-handed batsman

Born: 4 August 1980
County: Yorkshire
Test appearances: 5
Debut: v India 2001

Dawson has had an up and down year but has clearly made the right impression with those who matter.

A Test debut last winter followed by a summer out of form and in the wilderness - a bit of a rollercoaster which looks to be going back up again.

He should get a run at Sydney and at a push Adelaide, but that apart I can't see him playing a big role in the Tests.

Although things can change quickly on a tour and, if he starts well and performs better than Ashley Giles or if injury intervenes, predictions can go out of the window.
