Profile

One of the tallest first class cricketers in Australia, Ben Targett is a right arm fast bowler, handy lower order batsman and sound fieldsman for Tasmania in domestic competition. A former cricketing captain at one of the State's best known private schools, Targett showed consistent promise as a junior player and was accordingly invited to join the senior State squad in 1991 at the age of eighteen. However, given that cricket took a back seat to his university studies and a subsequent career in business and marketing in the years immediately thereafter, so his ability to forge an opportunity at the first class level waned and it was not until 1997 that he received the chance to re-join the squad. From there, he again made rapid strides - not only hastily recapturing a berth in the squad but also making his debut in just the third match of the 1997-98 Sheffield Shield season.
