Sydney-born and Canberra-raised Behrendorff made the switch to WA ahead of the 2009-10 season. Behrendorff broke through for WA in November 2011, taking 4-76 on his Sheffield Shield debut against Victoria, before winning the state's Future Legend award for the 2011-12 season. Behrendorff continued to develop during the 2012-13 campaign and emerged as a key member of the Perth Scorchers side in BBL|02. The young left-arm bowler finished with nine dismissals from six matches during BBL|02, including the important wickets of Chris Gayle, Aaron Finch and Matt Prior. Behrendorff recorded a persona T20 best of 3-44 against the Melbourne Renegades during BBL|02.
Jason provides us with a left-arm option if required at any stage during the tournament.
