Big Bash League: Opportunity-starved Perth Scorchers seamer Matt Kelly never thought of leaving

The thought of leaving Perth Scorchers has never crossed Matt Kelly’s mind, even in the midst of last summer’s opportunity-less tournament.

The Scorchers seamer and close mate Joel Paris were the victims of a perfect storm last season with Australian trio Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff and Andrew Tye all coming back from long-term injuries at the same time.

Paris bowled one over in BBL10, during a rain-ruined clash against Melbourne Stars in Launceston when Behrendorff made a cross-country dash for the birth of his second child, but has since left for Hobart for further opportunities.

Kelly’s only time on the field was running out the drinks but he never considered following his Claremont-Nedlands teammate’s lead, wanting to re-pay the Scorchers’ faith for giving him his first chance.
