(Video) Happy Birthday to Australian enabler Damien Martyn

Damien Martyn evolved as a terrific middle-order batsman for Australia during the turn of the century. He played for the national team sporadically in 1992–1994 before becoming a regular ODI player from 1999 to 2000 and a regular Test player in 2000 until his retirement in late 2006. A languid shot-maker whose strokes were scathingly beautiful, Damien Martyn was an unassuming hero during Australia’s golden era. Here’s a throwback to his power and poise as the freewheeling Aussie celebrates his birthday today.
