Xavier Doherty Bio


Xavier Doherty is an Australian cricketer who was born on November 22, 1982, in Scottsdale, Tasmania. He bowls as a left-arm slow-arm orthodox bowler and bats down the order as a left-handed batsman.


Doherty’s outstanding exploits in domestic One-Day Internationals caught the interest of the country at a young age, allowing him to play at the international stage.

He has represented Australia A team, Hobart Hurricanes, Melbourne Renegades, and Tasmania through the years.

In 2006-07 and 2007-08, Doherty was voted Tasmania’s ODI Player of the Year.


On November 25th, 2010, Doherty made his Test debut against England at The Gabba, and on November 3rd, 2010, he made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka at Melbourne Cricket Ground.

His Test career lasted two years, while his One-Day International career lasted almost four years.

Rise to Glory

Doherty took four vital wickets in a match against Sri Lanka in 2010, delivering incredible statistics. Despite the fact that the result was clearly in their favour, Angelo Mathews and Lasith Malinga led the Sri Lankan team to victory in an unlikely situation.

Low Points

He only took three wickets and allowed 306 runs in two Test matches in 2010. Despite this, he was guaranteed a spot in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. However, due to a back injury, he was forced to withdraw from the competition.

Recent Form

On March 14th, 2013, Doherty played his final Test against India at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium. On March 8, 2015, he played his last One-Day International against Sri Lanka at Sydney Cricket Ground.

He is now planning to return to the ODI squad because, considering his poor recent performances, he is one of Australia’s best bowlers.
