BBL|08 Player Profile – Jason Behrendorff

There are several players who grace Australian cricket that just have never reached their full potential.

Perth’s Jason Behrendorff is certainly one of those players.

Like many fast bowlers, he’s been cruelled by injuries for large portions of his career.

When he’s managed to play, he almost always takes wickets, no matter what level he’s at.

He’s a tall, athlete left-arm quick, who has the enviable ability of swinging the new white ball into the right-handed batsman.

His BBL debut came in BBL|02 and immediately he impressed – taking the wickets of Aaron Finch and Ben Rohrer.

His BBL record is really good. He’s taken 53 wickets from 38 games, at an average of 19.5 and an economy of 7.3.

This time last year he made his T20I debut for Australia, and claimed the wickets of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Manish Pandey in his second game at Guwahati (see below).

He’s got what it takes, of that, there is no doubt.

He’s priced at only $125k in SuperCoach, and his Official Fantasy pricetag will be very affordable too, after he missed all of BBL|07.

I can’t wait to see him back out there. And especially with Perth’s double week first up, I will be picking him.

  1. But hang on a second… Aren’t there too many Perth Scorcher bowlers to pick? I mean, there’s Tye, Coulter-Nile, Agar, Qadir, Mitch Marsh, Richardson, Kelly, Willey, and others… I get Perth Scorchers are the guys to get in Round 1, but won’t they be sharing all these wickets unevenly and inconsistently? Which begs the question: which 2 Scorcher bowlers would you pick, and which 2 Scorcher batters would you pick – (maybe you can carry more on the bench, but certainly, you wouldn’t pick more than 4 Scorchers on the ground, right?) I picked Tye and Coulter-Nile and got Green on the bench; Behrendorff cannot be selected in the batting order, so whom should I select? Qadir? Mitch Marsh?


    1. It’s the great dilemma isn’t it, Carleton? I think a lot of coaches will forget about Tye with the other Perth options, making him somewhat unique for a proven scorer. Let’s see how NCN and Agar go in this ODI series against South Africa, it might give us a good indication where they’re at. I will likely be picking Mitch Marsh if he’s not in the Test side.


      1. Oh, yeah. I liked N.C.N. before he started playing well with the Aussies. Since we do 3 trades every week anyway, I don’t mind getting International players – as long as they don’t muck up my bye-jugglings.
