Perth Scorchers announced the signing of England leader Tymal Mills on Thursday ahead of the upcoming 2021-22 Big Bash League (BBL) season. Mills will fill the void in the Perth squad left by compatriot England Brydon Carse, who was excluded from the flagship event after suffering a serious knee injury last month.

Scorchers head coach Adam Voges is thrilled to have Mills’ remarkable experience and versatility ahead of BBL’s debut. “We’re really excited to bring Tymal in after Brydon’s unfortunate injury. To be able to have someone of Tymal’s caliber – we’ve seen the impact he’s had for England in the World Cup and its The past 12 to 24 months have been exceptional, ”Voges said on the Perth Scorchers website.

“He’s a world-class performer, and he will obviously be very important for us at the end of the heats. In the death overs I can see him and AJ Tye being a really good combination,” he added. A thigh injury had prematurely ended Mills’ T20 World Cup shortly before this year’s semifinals.

The 29-year-old left gunsmith is delighted to be a part of Perth’s talented squad and play in what he has described as one of the “big competitions” in the world. “When they first got in touch I was extremely excited. It’s a great franchise with great players,” said Mills.

“It’s exciting to have the opportunity to play in great competitions, and when you join a new franchise it’s a great opportunity to meet new people and come in with a great group of guys,” he said. he added. The Perth Scorchers will open their BBL 11 campaign against Brisbane Heat at Optus Stadium on December 8. (ANI)
