Ben Hilfenhaus took to the field on eight occasions in BBL|05, finishing the season as the Stars' second highest wicket-taker.
In his first season with the team, Hilfy claimed 10 wickets. The swing bowler recorded his best figures of 3-17 in his Man-of-the-Match performance against the Perth Scorchers, delivering the Stars a home semi.
The boy from Tassie experienced an unorthodox entrance into first class cricket; becoming a qualified brick layer before taking 39 wickets in his debut first-class season in 2005-2006. Since then, he has played over 100 first-class matches and has taken more than 380 wickets.
The experienced bowler joined the Stars in BBL|05 after four solid BBL seasons with the Hobart Hurricanes.
