Jason Behrendorff is just one match old in international cricket. He debuted for Australia in the series opener of the three T20Is versus India at Ranchi. Behrendroff bowled just one over in the rain-curtailed encounter and conceded 5 runs without a wicket. Nonetheless, he is on fire in the ongoing second T20I at Guwahati. At the time of publishing this report, Behrendorff has already completed his full quota of overs; 4-0-21-4. He accounted for Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (for his maiden T20I duck), Manish Pandey and Shikhar Dhawan’s wickets. However, the youngster has also dismissed Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid in October 2013.

Yes, you read it write. Behrendorff featured for Perth Scorhers in Champions League 2013 and got rid of then Mumbai Indians’ and Rajasthan Royals skippers, Tendulkar and Dravid. The pacer has had a bright start to his international career, attaining some priced Indian scalps in form of Tendulkar, Kohli, Dravid and Rohit. His spell at Guwahati has wrecked havoc of India’s famed batting line-up, which in turn, is a do-or-die for Australia.

Looks like Australia have added another promising pacer in the bowling unit; comprising of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Nathan Coutler-Nile.

Australia trail 0-1 in the three T20Is after losing the opener at Ranchi by 9 wickets (DLS method).
