Biography

TOPICS: MC, SPEAKER, SPORT David Boon was a righthanded batsman and, occasionally, a right arm off spin bowler. Throughout his career, he has been known to his opponents as a dangerous and prolific run maker, whether opening or at number 3. At the beginning of the 1995 96 season, he had amassed 5665 runs for Tasmania, at 41.96, and a total of around 7,500 at an international level. This places him second on the list of all time highest Australian run getters. David Boon has been perennially popular with the Australian crowds, and will be sorely missed both here and overseas, from the grass roots levels to the bureaucrats. Former Prime Minister Paul Keating said of his retirement, “When the team was up against it, we came to count on you to fight with skill and courage. Cricket fans around the world will miss the great character and talent that you brought to the game.”
After retiring from all cricket following the completion of the 1999 county program, David Boon accepted a position in marketing with the Tasmanian Cricket Association in Hobart and in 2000 replaced Geoff Marsh, his mate and former opening partner, as an Australia selector. His legend also lives on at the NTCA ground in his home city of Launceston where a major stand has been named after him. David Boon is a true Australian ambassador aside from cricket he rates golf and Tooheys highly among his other passions. Based in Melbourne, travels Australia wide.
