The new season of the Big Bash League will begin on December 13.
England Test opener Zak Crawley will join Hobart Hurricanes as an overseas replacement ahead of the 2022-23 season of the Big Bash League (BBL).
Crawley will be joining the squad in the month of January, after England’s three-match Test series against Pakistan. He signed as Replacement of Pakistan all-rounder Shadab Khan, who’ll miss a few games because of international commitments.
I’m really excited to take part in the Big Bash for the first time: Crawley
“I’m really excited to take part in the Big Bash for the first time. From afar, the Hurricanes seem to be awash with talent both in terms of the list they have built for on-field success, but also the quality list of support staff they have on it. I’m looking forward to taking part in what I hope will be a very successful summer,” said the English cricketer after signing up for the franchise.
“Zak Crawley is poised to make his Big Bash League debut with the Hobart Hurricanes, after being named as an international replacement player for the Hobart Hurricanes,” a statement from Hurricanes read.
