Australian cricketer, Brody Couch, has decided to extend his stay with Melbourne Stars. He has signed a two-year contract extension with Melbourne Stars ahead of Big Bash League (BBL) 12. The 22-year-old grabbed headlines in the last year’s edition of the Big Bash League. He finished the season as the highest wicket-taker for the team, picking 16 wickets in 14 matches.
Despite players contracting with Covid-19, Couch was the only one of the two players who played all the matches in the season. He returned with 16 wickets at an outstanding average and economy of 22.06 and 8.21. His best spell came against Hobart Hurricanes, where he managed to pick 3 for 30.
Commenting on his contract extension, Couch said: “From the very first moment I walked into the Stars setup, I just wanted to learn as much as possible from the coaching staff and elite players at the club.
“I was lucky enough to be given an opportunity early in the season and I was pleased to be able to contribute to the team’s success.
“A highlight of being part of the Stars family is playing at the MCG and I can’t wait to play in front of some big crowds there in BBL12.”
General manager, Blair Crouch, added: “Brody proved himself to be up to the task very early in BBL11 when he made his debut and we’re thrilled to have secured his services for the next two years.
“He is nothing but a professional and deserves everything that comes his way, his work ethic and attention to detail were a standout in BBL11.
“We are looking forward to having Brody as part of the Stars family for at least the next two years.”
As far as his List A numbers are concerned, he has 6 wickets in as many matches at an economy of 6.16.
