Brody Couch

Brody Couch is a cricketer, perhaps now best known as a fast bowler with the Australian Big Bash League’s Melbourne Stars.

Recruited by Cricket Victoria at age 20, Brody made his List-A debut in the 2020-21 Marsh One-Day Cup season against Tasmania, where he impressively recorded one of the lowest bowling averages for the game. The following year he made his first-class debut in the 2021-22 Sheffield Shield season at the SCG, which he identifies as one of the highlights of his career to date.

That same year, Brody was recruited by the Melbourne Stars, where he not only debuted in the national T20 league’s 11th season, but played all 14 games, and finished the season as the Star’s leading wicket taker. This outstanding performance also secured him the title of BBL Rookie of the Year.

Brody is currently overseas playing cricket in a new T20 league starting up in the USA. Playing for the San Francisco Unicorns, Brody will be captained by Aaron Finch, and play alongside fellow Melbourne Stars teammate Marcus Stoinis.
