A clinical finisher in the middle-order, Behardien has been the undisputed batting banker for the Multiply Titans for several seasons, churning out runs in all formats, under all conditions and in every situation. And the 35-year-old just seems to be getting better and better.
Behardien averaged 80 in last season’s triumphant Sunfoil Series campaign, including a crucial century against the WSB Cape Cobras in his 100th first-class game, while in the T20 title run, ‘Fudgie’ was only dismissed once as he scored 234 runs at a strike-rate of 165, figures that were only matched by AB de Villiers. He also enjoyed a brilliant Momentum One-Day Cup campaign where he scored 437 runs at an average of 48.55, including 5 half-centuries.
In the previous season he was the T20 Player of the Tournament, his exploits including the fastest half-century (14 balls) in domestic T20 history.
On the international stage, Behardien has 59 ODI caps, in addition to 38 T20s for the Standard Bank Proteas.
