Travis Birt stole the show last summer with some phenomenal displays of his threatening and powerful batting style. He was the leading run scorer in the competition amassing 345 runs which included a top score of 74 (from 36 balls) as well as the fastest 50 ever recorded in Australian Domestic cricket after he scored 50 from 22 balls against the Melbourne Stars. His entertaining style of cricket gave the record crowds in Hobart and around the country a reason to get behind the new T20 Big Bash League.
Birt, a keen sports fan supports Collingwood as well as Melbourne Victory and Melbourne Storm in the three Australian football codes. He is also a keen follower of the Orlando Magic in the NBA and Dallas Cowboys in the NFL.
