IAN HARVEY
Right-arm medium bowler; Right-handed batsman

FACTFILE
Born: 10/4/1972
Team: Victoria
Test debut: not yet played
ODI debut: v South Africa at Sydney, 1997

A kitbag of uncommon skills have earned this Victorian all-rounder the nickname 'Freak', but he has never been a cast-iron regular in the one-day squad.

His slower ball is still a huge weapon even though most opponents have seen it before and he has tended to take big wickets at key moments.

But he is yet to register a half-century for his country and has an average of less than 20.

After a debut in 1997/98, he missed two seasons, including the 1999 World Cup triumph.

Played in many of the lead-up matches of the 2003 World Cup campaign but was usurped by Damien Martyn in the final, who batted with a broken hand.
