Profile

A tall bowler who relies on consistency and accuracy rather than sheer pace, Joe Mennie has been one of the Sheffield Shield's most reliable wicket takers since moving from northern New South Wales to South Australia in 2011. Mennie knew that his opportunities would be limited in his home state and soon after the move, made his first-class and one-day debuts for the Redbacks. In his first season Mennie was second on the state's Shield wicket tally and his results gradually improved from there, until in 2015-16 he topped the competition wicket list with 51 victims at 21.21. That led to a call-up for Australia in the 2016 winter, and strong performances there earned him a place on Australia's ODI tour of South Africa. Away from cricket, Mennie is happy avoiding the limelight, and is studying business at university.
