AAP logoAAP 28/10/2016

JOE MENNIE, THE RIGHT-ARMER POISED TO BECOME AUSTRALIA'S 445TH TEST CRICKETER:

Age: 27 First-class wickets: 155 at 26.68

* Born and raised in Coffs Harbour, where he idolised Steve Waugh and Glenn McGrath

* Played grade cricket in Sydney as a teenager and was rewarded with a Cricket NSW rookie contract

* Made his first-class debut with South Australia in 2011, extending the long tradition of NSW cricketers shifting states in search of greater opportunities

* Consistently delivered wickets for SA in the Sheffield Shield, troubling batsmen with accuracy and subtle movement more than pace

* His haul of 51 scalps during the 2015-16 season was recognised with Australia A selection, which in turn led to a ODI call-up for Australia's tour of South Africa earlier this month

* Hammered for 0-82, a record for an Australian on ODI debut, in Johannesburg but bounced back with figures of 3-49 in Cape Town
