About Nathan Michael Hauritz
Michael Hauritz was born 18 October 1981, Wondai, Queensland is an Australian cricketer who has represented Australia in Tests, One-dayers and Twenty20 Internationals. He is mainly noted for his off spin bowling. Nathan Hauritz surprised himself with his season in 2008-09 as he leapfrogged a host of fringe spinners to finish the season as the only specialist slow bowler with a Cricket Australia contract. It was a stunning turnaround for an office who was cut loose following his first Test in 2004.
After four breakthroughs in the opening one-dayer against the Proteas, he was chosen in every 50-over contest over two series, leading AustraliaS-B-Cs wicket-takers in the United Arab Emirates. He played three Pura Cup games - including the final loss to Tasmania - in his first season with the Blues and his four dismissals cost 63.50 each. However, his one-day form was excellent and he missed only one match, leading the stateS-B-Cs wicket tally with 14 at 24.As a junior Hauritz played his cricket with the Hervey Bay Cricket Association, representing Wide Bay at the Under 12 to Under 15 levels before captaining the Under 14 Queensland Development side that toured New Zealand in 1996
