Jackson Bird

One of the finest red ball bowlers in the nation, Jackson Bird’s career for the Tasmanian Tigers reads better than most.

The leading wicket taker in Sheffield Shield history for the Tasmanian Tigers at 312 with career best figures of 7/18 - Bird ‘s tenure as Tasmania’s leading bowler have been nothing short of sensational. Able to swing the ball both ways, Bird’s explosion onto the scene with 62 wickets in his first 10 games saw him earn his baggy green in 2012, eventually playing nine times for Australia at test level.

Returning now from injury which saw him sidelined for the beginning of the 2021/22 season, Bird will look to recapture the form which saw him take 35 wickets at an average of 22 in the previous Shield campaign.
