Bio

A right-arm fast bowler from New South Wales, Joe Mennie was forced to move to South Australia to get his chance in domestic cricket.

Debuting in 2011, he picked up 23 wickets at 26.26 in the Sheffield Shield that summer and he was the fourth-highest wicket taker the following season with 33 at 22.03 from just six matches, before he took 19 wickets in 2013-14.

Mennie has also proven himself to be a more than handy batsman in his first three seasons, with three half centuries and a top score of 79 not out.

He represented Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League before signing with Hobart Hurricanes in 2014.
