Ben Dwarshuis Biography, Wiki

Ben Dwarshuis is an Australian professional cricketer who plays for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League.

He was born on 23rd June 1994 and hails from Kareela in North-South Wales, Australia. He bowls left-arm fast-medium and is a left-handed batsman.

He usually plays the role of a bowling all-rounder, someone who is capable of smacking the ball from the lower order.

A disciplined left-arm seamer, he is given the paramount task of bowling in the powerplay overs and keep the lid down on runs.

A hard-hitting batsman too, he can add some firepower with the bat in the tail-end of the innings.

Background

He started out with the Sydney Sixers itself and has improved leaps and bounds since his debut under the guidance of bowling coach, Geoff Lawson who helped him with lengthening his run-up to get a bit more momentum at the crease.

Debut

He made his debut in the Big Bash on 19th December 2014, against the Melbourne Renegades at Sydney. He had an overall impressive debut as he picked up two wickets from his four-over spell despite conceding 38 runs.

Rise to Glory

He first caught attention in the 2016-17 Big Bash match against Melbourne Stars as he picked up a career-best 3/25 and then calmly saw off the win for Sydney with the bat.

Impressive performances followed in the next edition as well, as he picked up 2 wickets and then went on to score 21 not out in a losing cause, in the match against Adelaide Strikers.

He finally gained success when he was called up to the Australian T20 squad and signed in the 2018 IPL auction for INR 1.4 crores by Kings XI Punjab.
