Phil Jaques was another Australian left-handed opener who had to wait for his chance, but once he was given a permanent spot he refused to let it go easily. Only a severe back injury that restricted his movement could stop him; unfortunately it led to three operations and the loss of his contract in 2009. Jaques finished the 2008 West Indies tour with a century in the final Test, but he was dropped for the next match in India when Matthew Hayden returned and Simon Katich was the preferred partner. The back was already creaking and he was soon flying home for an operation, confident his comeback would be swift. Some complications, more surgery and the emergence of Phillip Hughes meant there were no openings even after Hayden's retirement. He returned to fitness for New South Wales in 2009-10 and was content with a summer that included a Shield hundred and a state record 171 not out in the FR Cup.
