Profile

A heavy-hitting left-hander who enjoys blasting sixes, Travis Birt has been mostly seen in one-day and Twenty20 matches for Tasmania over the past couple of seasons. His success in those formats earned him a call-up into Australia's Twenty20 squad in February 2010; at the time he was averaging 55 in the FR Cup for the 2009-10 summer. Birt topped the state's one-day averages the previous season with 385 runs at 48.12 but his lack of runs at first-class level resulted in him slipping out of the Sheffield Shield side. He had been part of the Tigers' historic Pura Cup-winning team in 2006-07, when he made 736 first-class runs but the next season didn't score a century.
