THE BREAK­OUT

D’Arcy Short (Ho­bart Hur­ri­canes)

ABC Cricket - - BBL -

Bat­ter, left-hand bat

The 28-year-old from Kather­ine in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory was per­haps the most un­likely star to emerge in the short his­tory of the BBL, rock­et­ing to na­tional at­ten­tion like one of the sixes that come off his bat. Short had only a sea­son of first-class and T20 ex­pe­ri­ence when he set to dom­i­nat­ing the league in 2017-18, scor­ing a record 572 runs and lead­ing the BBL in bound­aries and max­i­mums. The sig­na­ture mo­ment was his 122 not out against Bris­bane at the Gabba, an­other record mark. Short’s prodi­gious hit­ting could not be ig­nored – he was in the Aus­tralian T20 and ODI sides by sea­son’s end, the sixth indige­nous crick­eter to rep­re­sent the coun­try.
