Articles about Damien Martyn

Impeccable timing, deft touch, high elbow, textbook cover drives, and still as a statue while playing a shot—these are the attributes that make one call a batsman an artist. In an Australian cricket team that was packed with superstars, Damien Martyn was that—an artist. Unassuming and underrated, Martyn made batting look easy with the way he played. He wasn't always the artist people saw in the latter stages of his career. When he made his debut for Australia at the age of 21, he was a brash youngster who thought that defending was weak. His brashness led him to be axed from the team and sent to the wilderness. After being dropped from the team in 1994, Martyn did not play an ODI until 1997 and a Test until 2000. When he returned to the national team, he proved to be a vital cog in the Australian juggernaut that dominated cricket. His adaptability to the pitch and the effortless way in which he handled pace and spin made him one of the most aesthetically pleasing batsmen. Martyn retired from international cricket in 2006.
