He made the switch to Western Australia early in his career and since 2011 – 2012 has been the mainstay of the squad. His exceptional form in the early half of the 2010s led to Jason Behrendorff signing a contract with Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League (BBL).

Jason Behrendorff’s Australia national career has taken off in the last couple of years, particularly in ODI cricket. He also played in the Indian Premier League with Mumbai Indians in their title-winning campaign in 2019.

Jason Behrendorff’s T20I career

Although Behrendorff‘s one-day career has mostly been in the limelight, he first made a name for himself as a T20 bowler after performing for Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League. In October 2017, Behrendorff debuted in T20I playing against India. Even though he bowled only one over in the game at Ranchi, the very next game at Guwahati, the left-arm pacer scored the career-best figures of four for 21. He played just five more matches in the shortest format of the game for Australia switching around their pace bowlers. His last T20I for the national team came in February 2019 when he played against India again, at Bengaluru. While his International T20 career hasn’t yet proved to be a success, Behrendorff has been pretty good on the domestic scene, taking 74 wickets in 63 games at an average of 22.05 and an economy rate just over seven runs per over.

Jason Behrendorff ODI career

While he made his T20I debut in 2017, it took him two more years to play his maiden ODI. In early 2019, the left-arm seamer made his first appearance in the fifty-overs format for Australia against India in Sydney. He was impressive on debut, dismissing Shikhar Dhawan and MS Dhoni and finishing with figures of 2 for 39. Jason Behrendorff earned a call-up to Australia’s 2019 Cricket World Cup squad. He shone in the league game of the 2019 World Cup against its eventual champions, England, picking up a five-wicket haul, which remains his career-best performance. In 11 ODIs played, Jason Behrendorff has scored 16 wickets at an average of 32.31. His List A numbers show that he could appear more regularly in Australia’s ODI squad. In 48 List A games, Behrendorff has 65 wickets at an average of 29.49.

Jason Behrendorff IPL

Jason Behrendorff was sold to Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2019 auction. He made five appearances for the title-winning franchise, picking up five wickets at an average of 33. He was, however, conceding runs at an economy rate of 8.68. He was released ahead of the IPL auction 2020 after he sustained an injury that ruled him out of the upcoming IPL season.
