Simon Doull is a New Zealand Cricketing legend. His right-arm medium pace was capable of swinging away from the right-handers. Playing for the Blackcaps, he figured in just 32 Tests and 42 ODIs, taking 98 and 36 wickets respectively.
Doull’s finest hour arrived when he took 7-65 against India in the Boxing day Wellington Test in 1998. He played his last Test, against Australia, in March 2000 before turning to commentary and broadcasting.
Doull took his career-best bowling figures of seven for 65 in the Boxing Day Test in 1998 against India at the Basin Reserve in Wellington. Due to that performance, he reached a career-high ranking of 6 in the ICC Player Rankings on 26 December 1998.
Currently, Doull works as a cricket commentator for New Zealand’s SKY Sport. He has been part of the commentary team for the Indian Premier League since the very beginning in 2008.
