He suffered a serious back fracture then. Behrendorff was told his back injury might never heal. Another back injury sees Behrendorff missing the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/sheffield-shield" target="_blank">Sheffield Shield</a> matches. He is also unlikely to make it on time for <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/bbl-2017-18" target="_blank">Big Bash League (BBL)</a> that goes underway in two weeks. <p></p> <p></p>However, even if Behrendorff does make it on time for T20 league, his back injury might keep him away from the longer format. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/australia" target="_blank">Australia</a> are anyway caught in their selection conundrum. Another additional player would just add fuel to the fire. However, he is Australia s exciting talent. The bowler had earned accolades during the India T20I series in October. Although he ended with 4 wickets, they were the crucial wickets of batsmen Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Manish Pandey. <p></p> <p></p>Last summer, Behrendorff snared 9 for 37 against Victoria in an innings. With his persistent back pain, Behrendorff is restricted to white ball cricket. However, the 27-year old is determined to make Test debut. In a chat with <i>cricket.com.au</i>, Behrendorff expressed his desire. <p></p> <p></p><b>On his back injury</b> <p></p> <p></p> I was struggling to put my shoes on. As much as I wanted to bowl, I couldn't even physically run very well. It can be quite debilitating at times. <p></p> <p></p><b>On making Test debut for Australia</b> <p></p> <p></p> I don't think plans change really. It's the nature of the beast. Ideally I'll get my back in a position where I'm ready to go in four-day cricket again. Whether it is this year, next year, whenever it is. I'll still be wanting to get that red ball or pink ball back in my hand.
