Profile

Some strong performances in Australia's domestic circuit saw Ben Laughlin being drafted into the national set up for Australia during their tour of South Africa in 2008/09. He didn't really have anything worth word-spreading in his first few games and had a quiet series having picked up just a handful of wickets.

Laughlin earned his name in the domestic cricket when he picked up 6/23 against New South Wales while playing for Queensland in only his second List A game and the third best of all time. He built a reputation of being a trustworthy bowler in the death with his wise change of pace and witty variations in length, outsmarting many a batsmen. He moved on from Queensland to ply his trade for Tasmania.

Laughlin had a successful season in the second edition of the Big Bash League, picking up the most number of wickets by any bowler in the season with 14 scalps. Soon after, he was recalled in the Australian T20 side after this impressive effort. In 2013, he was bought by the Chennai for the sixth IPL season.
