Profile

A last-minute finger injury to Brad Haddin in the 2009 Ashes propelled Graham Manou on the international stage, as he played the first and only Test of his career in the third Test at Edgbaston. Months later, he was called up as a replacement for injured Tim Paine, thus making his ODI debut against India, where he played just four games.

A right-hand batsman and a talented wicket-keeper, Manou was a solid performer on the domestic front for his team South Australia in a career spanning over a decade. Ten years before he rose to national prominence, he made his first-class debut and sealed his spot in the South Australian set up. Impressive performances behind the stump as well as with the bat established him in the side, and he was soon elevated to the captaincy position. Manou continue to pile runs one season after another, and his glove work was at its best. Despite struggling with the bat in his initial first-class appearances, ‘Choc’ did well to bounce back strongly and went on to become a vital cog in the team. 

Manou announced his retirement from first-class cricket in 2011, putting an end to a 13-year old glorious career with South Australia, with 4000 plus runs and 348 dismissals to his credit in 106 games that he played.
