South Africa’s explosive batsman David Miller has inked a contract with Hobart for the upcoming edition of the Big Bash League. The 30-year-old will be able to represent his BBL franchise in all the 14 home and away games before returning to South Africa for the series against England.
Miller has a vast experience of 294 T20s and has plied his trade in some of the most coveted leagues around the world including the Indian Premier League. He will be Hobart Hurricanes’ second overseas signing after Afghanistan’s Qais Ahmad.
Miller has been roped in to add batting depth to Hobart in the absence of Matthew Wade and possibly D'Arcy Short and Ben McDermott, who are expected to be picked for Australia internationals. Miller has happy memories of Hobart as he bludgeoned 139 off 108 balls and helped South Africa to a win over Australia in the same venue last year.
