After donning jerseys of seven different domestic teams and ten years after he made his first class debut, Marcus North was repaid for his patience with a spot in the final Test eleven against South Africa in 2009. He repaid the selectors' trust by scoring a century on debut. A batsman that can score runs on all surfaces, North scored more than 9,000 first class runs and more than 3,500 List A runs before making his debut.
At an early age, North displayed his prowess at the bigger arenas. On Australia's Youth tour to Pakistan in 1997, aged 18, he scored a memorable 200 and 134 at Sheikhupura. He played junior cricket along with Michael Hussey. He made his List A and first-class debut in 1998/99 but it was not until 2003 that North's true potential started getting recognized. In that year, he scored close to 1,000 Pura Cup runs and remained consistent in the next few seasons as well. Among the county teams, North has had stints with Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Durham, Derbyshire and Lancashire.
A stable southpaw, North has also shown glimpses of being an attacking one-day international player – most notably with his innings of 115 off 85 balls against Tasmania in 2006-07. Another favour that works for North is that he is a handy off-spinner and a sharp fielder, making him a valuable asset to any side. When his national call-up was on the anvil, he suffered from a degenerative knee condition in 2007-08 but returned with strong performances for Gloucestershire and showed character on Australia A's tour to India in September 2008. He scored 117 on his Test debut in March 2009 against a strong South African bowling attack, thus proving that he has the temperament and character to be a long-standing player for Australia in the years to come.
