Cameron held the 4th best strike rate of all players in the first season of the BBL. He has four first class centuries to his name and has played over 30 T20 matches. Cameron says he’s “really looking forward to taking on more responsibility at Thunder and helping form a strong and dynamic side.”
Coach Shane Duff says Cameron is “an outstanding talent that has played some critical innings for the Redbacks and Strikers in the past. I look forward to working with Cameron”. Shane also believes Cameron is a player that the younger Thunder players will learn a lot from.
’Watch the ball’ and ‘the harder you work, the luckier you get’ are the two best pieces of cricketing advice Cameron has received over the years and he’s been lucky enough, and clearly good enough, to play in countries around the world. Cameron has also represented Australia in the U/19’s.
“Borgy” loves playing T20 and for BBL|02 he’s really looking forward to playing his first game for Thunder - the fact that it’s against the Sixers in our Away Derby should make it ever better he says. Cameron’s best memory from BBL|01 was playing in front of great crowds and he says playing with and against some amazing players was a huge highlight - it was a really exciting competition. The match winning centuries by David Warner and Chris Gayle for Thunder also really stood out for Cameron.
Winning the Big Bash with the Redbacks in 2010/11 in front of almost 30,000 people at Adelaide Oval is Cameron’s favourite cricketing moment so far.
