A consummate cricketing journeyman, Colin Miller is a spirited and highly unusual right arm bowler, belligerent lower order batsman, and wholehearted fieldsman. From his cricketing origins in the western suburbs of Melbourne until the late 1990s, Miller's career was primarily built on his reputation as a strongly built right arm paceman who could move the ball both ways and who had the capacity to vary his pace cleverly. In recent times, however, he has made a staggering transformation to his game, which has seen him rise from being a consistent, and well regarded State player to an Australian first-class record breaker and even to the status of international surprise packet.  Whilst some observers continue to be taken by surprise by the specters of Miller opening the bowling as a paceman and later returning to the crease as an off-spinner who extracts considerable bounce and turn, it must be noted that it would be difficult to identify many first class bowlers who have struck with anywhere near the same degree of consistency and rapidity as he has done in recent years. Indeed, regardless of where his career subsequently heads, Miller will surely long be remembered not only as one of the more versatile players ever to represent Australia but as one of the country's most amazing first-class success stories.
