Hardy is the jewel in the Dockeroos future crown. Drafted as the number 1 all rounder of his draft and the most talented player the Docker's have had. He leads the 5 Amigos. The bowling group of kids who can all bat that the braintrust at Droo's head quarters have put together in search of Div one titles. In three years things should start to come together and a real crack at being number one will be on the cards.
After 69 matches to date.... Hardy's return has been below par on expectations. I would have liked him to arv 50 wickets and 600 runs a season... with the bat he has over performed... adding much needed stability to the lower order. We just need him to start to get his straight arm ball to turn little... just a little!
He still has another 90 plus games ahead of him for the club... lets hope things to start to turn.(See what i did there... turn... get it?)
In perhaps his second last year as a 34 YO winning the T1 MVP in a championship season it is time to reconcile Hardy's career. Highly credentialed he was a bit of a slow starter but after over 160 games the champion he was like cream rose to the top. In no less than 7 of his seasons he finished in the top 5 or better MVP standings. Two times winner, a runner up 2 thirds and two 5ths. A unbelievable result from 11 full seasons.
He is only one of three multiple championship T1 players for Dockeroos. With over 8500 runs and 550 wickets. In hindsight his average of 42.9.. we could have batted him higher up the order and he would have easily fitted in there. In the end averaging about 739 runs a season and 48 wickets a year... a championship MVP and captain... not much he didn't achieve in his great career ... welcome to the our Hall of Fame well deserved.
