Player Profile

His massive structure has earned him the title of Duke; but rather than using his demeanor to intimidate batsman, John Hastings is an intelligent bowler who relies on his swing and subtle movement to earn wickets, instead of genuine pace.

Unable to break into the New South Wales first team even after serving their Under-17, Under-19 and Second XI sides, Hastings in the summer of 2006-07 switched allegiance to Victoria in search of greener pastures. It proved to be the start of a success story as after settling down in the first two seasons, Hastings repaid Victoria's faith in the third season with 36 wickets in the Sheffield Shield and was also their best bowler in the one day and T20 formats. A powerful striker lower down the order, Hastings got his first taste of international cricket when he replaced another youngster James Pattinson for the 2010 ODI series against India, wherein he made his debut and picked a couple of wickets. However, he had to wait for two more years before he could make his first Test appearance in Australia's high-profile series against South Africa at the end of 2012. Hastings was initially picked up by the now-defunct Kochi in the Indian T20 league but due to a shoulder injury, he couldn't make an appearance. For the 7th season, Chennai snapped him up.
