Geoff Lawson says he is one of the finds of the tournament and a player who is on the radar of national selectors.

The only thing that would top an outstanding Big Bash League for Canberra product Jason Behrendorff is victory in Friday's final at the WACA.

The left-arm quick will play a key role with the new ball and also at the death for the Perth Scorchers if they are to beat the Hobart Hurricanes.

The 24-year-old claimed 2-5 from his one over in Wednesday night's rain-shortened semi-final against the Sydney Sixers to continue his superb summer.

Behrendorff has taken nine wickets at an average of 20 to go with his miserly economy rate of 6.43 runs per over.

Having also shone in the Sheffield Shield and the Ryobi Cup, Lawson believes Behrendorff has added himself to the growing list of quality fast bowlers in the country.

''He'll be on the selectors' radar,'' said Lawson. ''He has been excellent and has been one of the finds of the tournament.

''He has good control, uses all his height and swings the ball more consistently than most people in Australia.''

The Tuggeranong junior came through the ranks with the ACT before making the move to Western Australia a couple of seasons ago.

The Scorchers are in their second straight final after going down to the Brisbane Heat in last season's decider.

''We're one step away from doing what we want to achieve,'' Behrendorff said.

''We were very excited to win last night, but after last year we're really hungry to reach our goal.

''There's a great feeling around the group and we can't wait to get out there tomorrow.''

After finishing third at the end of the round-robin stage, the Scorchers were on the verge of being eliminated as heavy rain almost forced their semi-final with the Sixers to be called off.

But they reached the minimum required of five overs as the Sixers finished at 6-48 in reply to the revised winning total of 54 from the Scorchers' original score of 5-193.

''A lot of people said we deserved to win the game that we batted so well, so we were lucky the rain held off and we got the result,'' Behrendorff said.
