BBL: Tim David commits to Hobart Hurricanes for two more seasons

Power-hitter, Tim David, has committed to the Hobart Hurricanes for at least a further two seasons, signing a two-year contract extension before the start of the BBL contract embargo period last month.

After switching to the Hurricanes to the Scorchers ahead of KFC BBL|10, David quickly rose to become one of the world’s most prolific T20 players, securing contracts in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Pakistan Super League, The Hundred and the Caribbean Premier League.

Despite batting at number six for the majority of KFC BBL|11, David came away as the Hurricanes fourth-highest run-scorer for the tournament.  He batted 14 innings at an impressive strike rate of 163.91, top-scoring with an impressive unbeaten 46 off just 20 deliveries.

After having worked on his bowling in the off-season. David also became a regular in the Hurricanes bowling attack. With the off-spinning finishing with best figures of 1-4 against eventual finalists, the Sydney Sixers.

“I’m really happy to be extending my time with the Hurricanes,” David said.

“I’m thankful to the opportunity they gave me two years ago to be part of this team.  The Hurricanes have been an important part of my growth as a player.  I believe we have some great talent in this squad. And I’m confident that if we play our best cricket we are capable of winning the BBL.”

Cricket Tasmania’s General Manager of High Performance, Simon Insley, said securing David’s signature was a part of the plan to keep the Hurricanes core group of players together in search of long-term success:

“Despite the fact that we were disappointed with how our season ended this year. And we truly believe in the core group of players that we have at the Hurricanes.”

“Keeping this group will assist us attracting a reputable candidate to the head coach role,” Insley added.”

“Tim has had a meteoric rise over the past two seasons that is a testament to his hard work. We are delighted to have him non board for BBL|12 and BBL|13.”

David joins Nathan Ellis, Ben McDermott, Joel Paris, D’Arcy Short and Matthew Wade as Hurricanes currently signed for BBL|12.
