Ed Cowan returns home to Sydney to join the Sixers in BBL|04! This is Ed's second stint with the magenta men, after playing one match for the Sixers in BBL|01 before receiving the call up to the Aussie Test team.
Ed lived every young cricketers dream when he earned his Baggy Green on Boxing Day at the MCG and then went on to make 68 on debut. He was supposed to be in the crowd with mates celebrating some Christmas cheer, but had to give his ticket to a friend after receiving the call up! He has since gone on to play 18 Tests for his country, most recently in the 2013 Ashes series in England.
Off the pitch he is a lover of outdoor sports including skiing and surfing, and lists Kelly Slater being one of his heroes. An excellent writer, has already written a superb diary of a season in the life of an Australian First class cricketer called ‘In the Firing Line’, and regularly writes for cricket websites including Cricinfo.
