The Hobart Hurricanes are excited to announce the return of Mac Wright to their line-up for KFC BBL|12.

It will be Wright’s fourth season in purple, with the right-hand batter keen to replicate the form of his debut Big Bash League season.

On that occasion recorded Wright recorded an impressive personal best 70*, and went on to average 49.67 for the tournament.

Also, an incredibly handy fielder, Wright provides the Hurricanes with a versatile option across the board.

“It’s really exciting to be back with the Hurricanes again this season,” Wright said.  “Once again, I think we’ve got a really strong line-up and there will be competition for spots, but I think that’s the hallmark of a really good team.”

“We now have a lot of players across both the Hurricanes and Tigers programs down here in Hobart, and with [Jeff] Vaughany coming on board as the head coach of the Hurricanes as well, I think that consistency will be really beneficial to us.

“Over the past couple of years we’ve been relatively successful across the Tigers side of things, so really, when you add guys like Tim David and Shadab Khan into the mix, I don’t why we can’t replicate that at the Hurricanes.”

Wright joins Asif Ali (o/s), Faheem Ashraf (o/s), Tim David, Paddy Dooley, Nathan Ellis, Caleb Jewell, Shadab Khan (o/s), Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, Mitch Owen, Joel Paris, Wil Parker, D’Arcy Short, Billy Stanlake, Chris Tremain and Matthew Wade as Hurricanes currently signed for BBL|12.

One more place remains available on the Hurricanes list for the upcoming season.
