Playing Role



A left-arm bowler with good pace and the ability to swing the ball, Jason Behrendorff has come to prominence for Australia in limited-overs cricket as a new ball specialist. He was born in Sydney and raised in Canberra but has made his career with Western Australia after there during the 2009 off-season. He made his first-class debut in 2011-12 but his breakthrough season was 2013-14, when he finished second only to Steve O'Keefe on the Sheffield Shield wicket tally with 40 victims at 22.70. That season earned him a call-up to the Australia A squad for their four-day matches against South Africa in the 2014 winter.

He followed up with another superb 2014-15 season where he helped WA win a domestic one-day title and Perth Scorchers win the BBL title. He was named the Australian domestic cricketer of the year in January 2015. Injuries plagued him in 2016-17 but he took 14 for 89 in a Shield match against Victoria, the ninth best Shield figures in history and the second best since World War Two. He has only played a handful of first-class matches since as ongoing back issues have forced him to focus on limited-overs cricket.

He made his T20 international debut in India in October 2017 and took an impressive 4 for 21 in his second game in Guwahati, removing India's top four of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and Manish Pandey. He made his ODI debut in January 2019 and removed Dhawan again in his first over. He was used judiciously in a specialist new ball role on the ODI tours of India and the UAE leading to his selection in the 2019 World Cup squad.

Away from cricket, Behrendorff has studied sports science.
