29 year old spinner Doherty led the way last year for the Hurricanes, stepping into the Captaincy role with Tim Paine’s absence. His leadership and skilful spin bowling was a major factor in the success of the Hurricanes in BBL 01. Doherty recorded a man of the match performance at Adelaide Oval against the Strikers taking 4-17 to give his side victory.
‘X’ as he is known to his team-mates is an ‘Entourage’ fan and when he isn’t catching up on the latest episodes can be found fishing in the cool waters of Tasmania. A keen Essendon supporter, Doherty is also completing a Certificate IV in Residential Drafting at the Tasmanian Polytechnic. It is an exciting period for the Australian ODI spinner with him and his wife Emma expecting a new addition to their family in the next few months.
