He burst into the Sheffield scene in 2012/13 as a 22-year-old, and immediately impressed everyone with his precocious penchant for taking top-order wickets, including getting the then-Aussie-captain MIchael Clarke out twice in the same Shield game against New South Wales. He ended up with an unprecedented 31 wickets at 23.51. However, the dream run came to a sudden halt when the ICC deemed his action illegal in 2013.
After the humiliation of a ban, Gannon came back strongly with a remodeled action and the ban was lifted for the 2013/14 domestic season. He was signed by the Brisbane Heat BBL franchise after his comeback and immediately responded with 18 wickets in 8 matches. More importantly, he had paid off as an investment for the Heat, as several teams were looking to play him out and target the other bowlers; such was the discomfort he caused to the batsmen because of the steep bounce he generated. That, combined with lateral movement off the seam turned out to be almost unplayable on slightly responsive surfaces.
He played for the Stars and Renegades in the two subsequent seasons and returned to Brisbane Heat in the 2017/18 season. This giraffe of a man could be Brisbane Heat's Trump card in this BBL, and the owners will hope that Gannon repays their faith.
