About David

David Boon is one of Tasmania’s favourite sporting sons. He had a distinguished career with Australia and Tasmania. A courageous right-handed batsman, perhaps not the most stylish stroke maker, he had an uncanny ability to occupy the crease and accumulate runs when his team needed them most.

At just 18 Boon starred in Tasmania’s inaugural 1978-79 Gillette Cup win, the state’s first title. He went on to have a career of 17 years that included four Ashes series wins. Highlights were the spectacular 1989 Ashes win in England, his 184 not out in the bicentenary Test in 1988 and his Man-of-the-Match performance in the 1987 World Cup final.

Almost always coming in at number 3, Boon was one of the key reason why Australia returned as a cricketing power in the late 80s and early 90s. In addition to his 107 Tests and 181 One Day Internationals, Boon led Durham in the English County Championship between 1997 and 1999. He also captained Tasmania at opposite ends of his career.

Following his retirement in 1999, Boon spent more than a decade as an Australian selector and as general manager of Cricket Tasmania. In 2011 Boon became an ICC match referee. A major stand at the NTCA Ground in his home city of Launceston bears his name.
