Regular of the South Africa cricket team, David Miller has been signed by Hobart Hurricanes for the 2019-20 edition of the Big Bash League in Australia. He is expected to be available all fourteen home and away games.
David Miller has played as many as 294 T20s and comes with the experience of various T20 leagues around the world. He will become the second overseas signing for the club after Afghanistan’s Qaid Ahmad was picked up by the club.
Miller will be expected to stand up when Matthew Wade and possibly D’Arcy Short and Ben McDermott are picked for Australia internationals. Miller has tasted success before in Hobart when he hit 139 off 108 balls and helped South Africa to a win over Australia in 2018.
“It’s very exciting to welcome a player of David’s caliber to the Hurricanes,” Cricket Tasmania CEO Nick Cummins said. “We’ve built a reputation as a destination club amongst internationals, and we are confident David’s hard-hitting batting will give our members and fans great entertainment, and possibly a few opportunities to catch a six!”
“We expect to lose some batting experience throughout the season, so David will provide valuable runs in our drive to our third successive finals campaign.”
Hurricanes kick-start their campaign on December 20 against the Sydney Sixers in Alice Springs.
