Damien began his test career in spectacular fashion with a hat-trick on debut against Pakistan in 1994. The fast bowler continued to star for Australia in both Test matches and One Day Internationals.
Following his playing retirement in 2003, he was appointed coach at the Australian Cricket Academy and also became a best selling author plublishing a book with stories of his life in cricket.
In recent years Damien has been a key part of the Big Bash commentary team and the Channel 7 test cricket coverage. He is much loved by audiences for his wit and humour.
