Nicknamed as 'the Freak', Ian Harvey is an all-rounder who has representedVictoria, Gloucestershire and Australia since the time he made his first-class debut in 1993-94.
As a medium pacer Harvey possesses an almost-always deceptive slower ball that is regarded as one of the best in the world.
Harvey varies the pace of the ball intelligently, and is capable of some very useful runs in the lower middle order.
Harvey came in as a replacement to Shane Watson in the World Cup after Watson was confirmed as having a stress fracture in his back.
Despite being on the fringes of the team, he still made six appearances during the tournament, taking eight wickets at 19.6 apiece and averaging 22 with the bat.
