Bio

The son of former Test quick Craig and brother of  state paceman Alister, Ben McDermott made his Big Bash League debut in the 2013-14 season for Brisbane Heat, scoring 30 in his first match against Adelaide Strikers. 

He had signed a rookie contract at the start of that season but didn't make his debut for the Bulls until the following summer. 

His maiden first-class match was one to forget; he made scores of 0 and 2 and was the second wicket in Chadd Sayers's hat-trick at Adelaide Oval. 

McDermott rose to prominence in BBL|06 with a masterclass in big hitting, the right-hander blasted nine sixes on his way to a match-winning 114 off 52 balls.
