His senior debut for Jersey came in 2011, at the age of 18, when he played against Cornwall and a Hertfordshire development team early in the season. Bodenstein also represented the Jersey under-19s in 20-over tournaments in both 2011 and 2012, playing against other European sides. While a student at Oxford Brookes University in 2013, he was selected in Oxford MCC University's squad, playing a number of fixtures against university sides and various other teams.

On debut, he took five wickets for the match (3/53 and 2/12), but scored only 1 and 4 in his two innings. His batting fared slightly better against Worcestershire, with a first-innings duck followed by 27 in the second innings, but he failed to take a wicket while bowling.
Later in 2013, Bodenstein appeared for Jersey at the 2013 European T20 Championship, held in England in July. He played four out of five games at the tournament, including Jersey's semi-final loss to Italy, and finished with eight wickets, second only to Ben Stevens for Jersey. The 2013 World Cricket League Division Six tournament was hosted by Jersey later in the month, and Bodenstein again had a successful tournament – only three players (two Nigerians and Ben Stevens, again) took more wickets than his eleven.
