Andrew Fairman is something of a paradox. On one hand he is a softly spoken family man with choir boy looks. On the other hand, on the field he is an aggressive, in-your-face fast bowler with a sizzling bouncer that zeroes in like a guided missile at the poor unsuspecting batsman's head.
Why this dichotomy in behaviour? This conundrum is not easily answered as Andy Fairman is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
Originally hailing from Cape Town, South Africa, Andy has at various times in his life spent time in the UK, Zimbabwe and back in the UK again before coming out to Australia. With his partial Afrikaaner origins, Fairman exhibits all the typical qualities you expect from a Boer; honesty, hard working, loyal to a fault...and a psychopath on the sporting field!
Fairman can frequently be seen snarling at batsmen, glaring at umpires that do not agree with his appeals and is particularly famous for his icy stare at teammates who do not hold onto slips catches!
With a bat in his hands, like most Saffers, Andy is more than handy and can be relied upon to chip in with valuable scores in the lower half of the order.
A great competitor, and one of the nicest blokes you will ever meet - so long as you aren't a batsman!
