Profile

Another consistent season from Ben Edmondson in 2007-08 confirmed him as one of the most dangerous fast men in Australia's domestic first-class competition. Injuries kept him to seven Pura Cup appearances but he collected 26 wickets at 25.65 and was particularly impressive at the Gabba against his former state Queensland, when he grabbed a career-best 7 for 95. Also useful in the FR Cup, he picked up ten wickets at 18.50 from only five games. Had Edmondson played the full summer, he could perhaps have bettered his impressive 2006-07 tally of 41 first-class victims at 29.95. Only Ben Hilfenhaus and Andy Bichel took more Pura Cup wickets in 2006-07, which was a breakthrough season for Edmondson. His speed and ability to swing the ball suited the conditions at Hobart where he humiliated Tasmania with 6 for 28 as they were dismissed for 94, and he collected another four in the second innings to record his first ten-wicket match.
