Profile

Ben McDermott did not follow the family trend of bowling fast like his father Craig and brother Alister, but has instead made a name for himself as a batsman and some-time wicketkeeper. After making his BBL debut for the Brisbane Heat in 2013-14, his initial forays into state cricket came for Queensland, but in 2015 he signed a rookie deal with Tasmania. After a few years of hovering on the fringes of domestic cricket, McDermott blasted into the spotlight in the 2016-17 BBL when he smashed 114 off 52 balls to set the Hobart Hurricanes on the path to a remarkable win at Etihad Stadium, chasing down the Melbourne Renegades' score of 222, which had been the highest total in BBL history. His innings was also, at the time, the second-highest individual score in BBL history.
