Hobart Hurricanes Squad for BBL10
The Hurricanes will be without veteran batsman George Bailey, who has retired since the last BBL. They have looked to replace him with Peter Handscomb, who has joined from the Melbourne Stars.
Matthew Wade is the Hobart Hurricanes captain and has plenty of experience to lean on in all-rounder James Faulkner and D’Arcy Short.
The franchise draws on players from the Tasmania cricket team and have international stars Short, Wade and others.
Local talent like Riley Meredith, Ben McDermott, Nathan Ellis and more have been on the fringes of international selection for a while. This shows the growth at the Hurricanes.
Their group of overseas players is formidable. West Indies fast bowler Keemo Paul has been called up. Nepal leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane is there, too.
Will Jacks is an exciting prospect, having starred in the T20 Blast in the United Kingdom.
The Hurricanes have certainly capitalised on some of the rule changes in the BBL, one of which now allows three players per XI.
The cap used to be two. This is effectively a step closer to aligning with the Indian Premier League, which allows four overseas players per XI.
