Player Profile(#19)...Jacob Oram(New Zealand)


Jacob David Philip Oram (born 28 July 1978, Palmerston North, Manawatu, New Zealand) is a New Zealand cricketer. He is a big hitting left-handed batsman and a right-arm fast-medium bowler. Because of his abilities with both bat and ball, he is a regular fixture in the current New Zealand test and one day sides. He usually bats around 6 or 7 for New Zealand. Oram's bowling has been more successful in the shorter format: he has reached as high as 5 in the ICC ODI Player Rankings as a bowler. Standing at 1.98m (6ft 6 in), he was a schoolboy representative as a soccer goalkeeper. He has also played for Manawatu in the Hawke Cup.
