Hobart, May 15 (CNMSports) - Australia all-rounder James Faulkner has signed up with the Hobart Hurricanes for the next three seasons of the Big Bash League (BBL), the franchise announced on Tuesday.
The Tasmania-born Faulkner's move to the Hurricanes franchise has come after being with the Melbourne Stars for seven seasons.
Cricket Tasmania chief executive Nick Cummins said Faulkner would add "significant value" to the Hurricanes, who finished runners-up in last season's BBL.
"We are pleased to finally have the opportunity to work with him for a full 12 months of the year and help him get back into the Australian squad," he said. "The fact he is a Tassie cricketer makes it all the better and he holds a fantastic record in the Big Bash, IPL and at the T20 International level," he added.
