Travis Birt had a quieter BBL|02 after dominating the first year of the competition and leading the way in the run scoring stakes. He amassed 116 runs in the BBL's second year with a top score of 57no against the Brisbane Heat where he and Owais Shah showed their brutal hitting ability. Birt's entertaining style of cricket makes him a big favourite amongst fans and they, like Travis, will be hoping the Birt from BBL|01 returns and lights up stadiums around the country this summer.
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.
A really dynamic, exciting and explosive player and someone who obviously gets the crowd in. I'm looking for him to repeat the first year he had in the BBL which was outstanding.
