Ben Rohrer becomes first signing of BBL Trade Week

24/02/15 Category: News Posted by:

Ben Rohrer has become the Sydney Thunder’s first off-season recruit, joining the club at the start of the KFC T20 Big Bash League Trade Week.

The 33-year old, who has also played in the Indian and Caribbean Premier Leagues, leaves the Melbourne Renegades after scoring 498 runs at an average of 31.16.

“It was very exciting to get the call that the Thunder was interested in me,” said Rohrer.

“I had three good years down at the Renegades but it’s nice to come back to Sydney and hopefully put in a few good performances for the Thunder over the next few years.”

The left-hand middle order batsman has been impressed with the progress that the Thunder have made over the past 12 months.

“I thought BBL04 was a huge improvement on the last few years,” said Rohrer.

“The squad that was put together was very well rounded and if not for a few injuries, I think the semi-finals were a realistic option.”

Sydney Thunder General Manager, Nick Cummins, said Rohrer was an exciting signing for the club.

“We are delighted that Ben has returned home to join the Sydney Thunder.  Ben will bring poise and experience to our middle order and provide valuable leadership off the field.  He is a widely respected player in New South Wales and I know he will be a fan favourite,” he said.

Rohrer has won the T20 Champions League with the NSW Blues and the Sydney Sixers and has also represented Australia once in the shortest format of the game.

The KFC T20 Big Bash League Trade Week allows clubs to trade or transfer players to another club at any stage of their contract with the approval of both clubs and the player.
