Damian Sale


Damian Sale: Debut 2006, Wicket Keeper.

Sale made his debut in the same match as Kiwi sensation Dan Jordan. Somewhat regrettably that is about as much as the pair had in common (although they do both bat right-handed). Sale recorded his highest score for the club in 2009 (31) and also passed the 100-run mark for his career. He also moved into the Top 25 in the all-time list of ducks.

Sale’s unfortunate tendency to charge down the track and spoon the ball to cover before he has scored more than 2 has hampered his development as a batsman. However, he showed signs towards the end of the year that his batting was progressing and his final average of 5.92 comfortably eclipsed his career mark of 4.14.

Sale’s biggest asset is his skill behind the stumps. He was a regular in the 2nd XI throughout the season and also deputised in the 1st XI on numerous occasions, invariably doing a tidy job behind the steps and never letting his team down. A fierce competitor and committed team-man, Sale rarely misses an opportunity to let his colleagues know if they’re performance is not up to scratch.

A keen umpire – on occasion some might say an over-zealous officiator – Sale has no qualms about sending his own batsmen on their way before returning to the pavilion to tell them where they went
