Stuart LAW - Overseas player 1990

Stuart Law was the second overseas player. He returned to Queensland after only eight games due to a knee injury. During his stay, he showed his potential with a century at home to Addingham and an immaculate 42 at Horsforth on a treacherous wicket.

His swing bowling was also a successful feature of his short stay. He bowled 608 deliveries, 17 maidens and took 14 wickets for 270 at an average of 19.2, an economy rate of 2.66 runs / over. He took 5 wickets on two occasions; he also took another 5 wicket haul in the Waddilove Cup first round against Crossflatts.
On his return to Queensland, his career immediately went from strength to strength winning the Sheffield shield player of the year in 1990/91 with an average of over 75. He also scored an undefeated half century in, surprisingly, his only Test appearance for Australia (v Sri Lanka in Perth) although he has played in many one day internationals including a World Cup Final.

He has captained Queensland to four Sheffield Shield Championships and two one day trophies making him the most successful captain in Australian domestic cricket. He has also made many influential performances for Essex, Lancashire and Derbyshire during several seasons, topping the First Class Averages in 1999. He is now assistant coach of the Sri Lankan International Team.
