Beau Casson is a slow left-arm chinaman bowler and a right-handed batsman who has played first-class cricket for New South Wales and Western Australia. Casson was born with a heart trouble; however that has not deterred him from playing cricket. Born in Perth, he used to play for the WA team earlier, but not finding the success formula, he switched to the more spinner helpful conditions in NSW.

With NSW, Casson had a better chance given Stuart MacGill's prolonged absence due to international commitments or injuries. And this is where he began to come in his own, however, not many gave him too much thought as a replacement for Shane Warne, with Stuart MacGill, Brad Hogg, Dan Cullen, Cullen Bailey and even the more senior Bryce McGain having better chances. However, it was his strong performances in the 2007-08 season that first helped him clinch the Australian contract, and then the retirement of Brad Hogg and the need for a long-term replacement for both Shane Warne and Stuart MacGill that propelled him into reckoning with a ticket on the flight to the Caribbean, where he played the only Test of his career.

Incidentally, he was also the part of the Australian Under-19 World Cup winning team in 2002, and that gave him the ticket to attend the Academy.
