New Zealand vs Australia 2020-21

A strong BBL helped earn a recall having learnt from a tough start to international cricket

Ben McDermott believes he returns to Australia’s T20 side a different player after a 16-month absence but he knows his move to the top of the order for the Hobart Hurricanes will hinder his chances to find a permanent place in Australia’s line-up.

McDermott played 12 T20Is for Australia in 2018-19 but battled in a difficult middle-order role as Australia struggled to settle on a winning combination in the first two years of Justin Langer’s coaching tenure.

He made just 98 runs from 10 innings at a strike-rate of 93.33 and suffered the ignominy of being run out in three of his first four innings.

“That was probably through a role that I don’t do for the Hurricanes anymore, which is bat in the middle,” McDermott said. “Batting up the top of the order now, I’ve sort of forced my way back in there with an amount of runs. But that comes with the challenge of batting at the top order at this level, which is pretty stacked obviously with Finch, Wade, Philippe, and all these guys, Stoinis, so it’s a tough spot to crack.”
