Marcus Stoinis

Mr Versatile has established himself as an important cog in the Aussie machine in the months leading up to the World Cup, with his ability to hit quick runs and take important wickets


Born: August 16, 1989

Role: Right-hand bat, right-arm medium

Australia’s ODI Player of the Year for 2018, Marcus Stoinis was the only player to appear in all 13 of Australia’s ODIs that year as he scored four half centuries, 376 runs and took 13 wickets.

A destructive batsman capable of batting anywhere in the order and a medium-pace bowler, Stoinis’ first taste of international honours came in 2015 against England after a successful domestic campaign with Victoria.

Stoinis scored 219 runs and three fifties in the One Day Cup – the second most by a Victorian player – and he also topped Victoria’s run scoring charts as they won the Sheffield Shield that year.

Solitary ODI and T20I appearances against England did not produce good enough performances to keep Stoinis in the side and so he returned to Victoria to try and earn himself a recall.

Nearly two years later in January 2017, Stoinis was given a second chance after scoring 1,855 runs at 40.32 since his last appearance for his country and the Perth-born allrounder has not looked back since.

His return yielded a not out 146 from No.7 as he won the game for Australia after coming to the crease with the score at 54-5 in the 13th over; 3-49 with the ball also helped him earn the man-of-the-match award.
