Bio

Ben Hilfenhaus was working as a bricklayer and earning only a rookie contract with Tasmania when picked up 39 wickets in the 2005-06 Sheffield Shield, a state record for a debut season.

The right-armer took 60 wickets the following season as the Tigers won the title, while he also made his international debut in a T20 match against England and was named Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year.

Despite earning a Cricket Australia contract, injury meant Hilfenhaus had to wait until 2009 to make his Test debut, against South Africa in Johannesburg.

He was the leading wicket-taker in the 2009 Ashes series that followed, but injury and a dramatic dip in form during the 2010-11 Ashes saw him lose his place in the Test side.

He returned with a bang in 2011-12 series against India, taking 27 wickets at an average of 17.22 in Australia’s 4-0 series win.

He was then ranked the No.6 Test bowler in the world, but he again lost his place as his form dropped slightly and Australia’s pace stocks grew.
