Marcus Stoinis is an Australian all-rounder who is a right-handed batter and a medium pacer by trade. Stoinis was a member of the Australian Under-19 World Cup squad in Malaysia in 2008, which included players like Steven Smith, Phil Hughes, James Pattinson, Josh Hazlewood, and James Faulkner.
Stoinis made his Western Australian debut in January 2009, when he was 19 years old. However, he was unable to establish himself as a regular member of the starting eleven and opted to relocate to Victoria for the 2012-13 season.
He chose to play for the Northcote Cricket Club in the Victorian Premier Cricket league on the advice of former teammate Theo Doropoulos. Things began to change for Stoinis soon after he achieved tremendous success at Northcote. In 2013/14, he hammered four century and averaged a whopping 100 for the season.
Stoinis' selection in the Victorian state team was a foregone conclusion given his form, and he was shortly selected in Victoria's Sheffield Shield side.
He didn't let the Victorian selectors down, hitting a brilliant 170 against Tasmania, cementing his position in the Victorian top-order.
In the 2014/15 Sheffield Shield season, he was Victoria's leading run scorer. During the summer, he scored 785 runs at a 49.06 average. In July 2015, he was also a member of the Australian A team that visited India. Stoinis was named to the national team for the ODIs and the lone T20I against England in August-September 2015 after scoring 77 and taking 2/18 in the first four-day game against India A.
He improved as a batsman over time, and his bowling was always useful. In the 2018-19 BBL, he started the batting for Melbourne Stars and has been in excellent form recently. He'll be a key component of Australia's World Cup strategy in 2019.
The 'bonafide all-rounders,' for example, are a premium quality that isn't plentiful in the Indian top league. Marcus Stoinis is one of the few cricketers who can bat anywhere in the order, bowl meaningful overs at both the start and finish of a T20 innings, and field with authority. These attributes encouraged the Royal Challengers Bangalore to make a deal with Kings XI Punjab before of the 2019 Indian Premier League season. Stoinis is a strongly built guy with the capacity to clear any ground with his ruthless striking method, despite being a late bloomer by international standards.
In 2015, he was signed by Delhi Daredevils, however he did not fit into the franchise's plans, and he was eventually purchased by Kings XI Punjab in following auctions. Despite the fact that his international record was improving, it didn't convert into major performances for the Mohali-based band. Despite the fact that the transfer cost them 6.2 crores, they utilized their right to match card to take him off RCB's hands at the 2018 IPL auction. KXIP had reasons to offload their greatest asset after another mediocre season, and when RCB came knocking again in 2019, they were glad to swap him for home-bred Mandeep Singh.
