Cricket news - Hobart Hurricanes sign David Miller for 2019-20 BBL

Miller has played 294 T20 matches

South Africa batsman David Miller has signed with Hobart Hurricanes for the upcoming 2019-2020 Big Bash League. The 30-year-old will be available to play all 14 home and away games.

Miller has played as many as 294 T20s and comes with the experience of various T20 leagues around the world. He becomes the club's second overseas signing this year after Qais Ahmad from Afghanistan.

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 calibre 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.
