Bio

Born in New South Wales and growing up in Canberra, left-armer Jason Behrendorff made his debut for Western Australia in a one-day match in 2011, dismissing Tasmania’s Mark Cosgrove with his very first ball.

He also took 4-76 on Sheffield Shield debut that season and showed enough to earn a contract with both the Warriors and Perth Scorchers for the following summer.

His breakthrough season came in 2013-14 when he finished the summer as the second-highest wicket-taker in the Sheffield Shield with 40 wickets at 22.70 as the Warriors made the final.

He also took 11 wickets in nine matches as the Scorchers claimed the Big Bash League title and later earned a call-up for Australia A’s 2014 winter series.

He was on the cusp of selection for Australia in the shorter formats, but stress fractures in his back have stalled his progress.

But boasting pace and the ability to move the ball, Behrendorff will be looking to thrust his name in front of national selectors in coming seasons.
