Bird is more preferred in the longest format of the game unlike the modern day bowlers. He has played more first-class than the limited-overs formats. As he grabbed over 100 wickets in just about 20 odd matches, the Australian selectors were convinced that he is good enough to represent the country at the highest level and gave him a place in Australia's Test squad against Sri Lanka as they decided to rest Mitchell Starc.
Eventually, he made his Test debut at Melbourne against the Islanders in 2012, just over a year from making his first-class debut. He was given the last two Tests in the series and did well picking up 11 wickets overall, including a 4-wicket haul in the last match.
He was also given a ticket to tour with the side to England for the 2013 Ashes series but did not get opportunities as the likes of Ryan Harris and Peter Siddle were hard to be ignored. However, he made his only appearance at Durham in the 4th Test but failed to grab eyeballs and did not pick up many wickets.
In the Big Bash League though, he represents the Melbourne Stars since 2012 and has done fairly well. In the 2013/14 edition, he picked up 13 wickets to be the joint-leading wicket-taker for the side.
