31-year old spinner Xavier Doherty led the way in the spinning stakes for the first two years of the BBL for the Hurricanes but had a quieter BBL|03. Due to representing Australia in the One-Day series against England over the summer he was only able to play 5 matches for the Hurricanes this season however his leadership and skilful bowling has been a major factor in the success of the team and is a favourite amongst the fans.
‘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 and is a Dad to 1 and a half year old Scarlett.
X is one of the best spinners in the country and had a great BBL|02. He is also handy with the bat down the lower order, so we will be looking for him to play a crucial role in the side once again this summer
