The Hurricanes are pretty awful with their news. According to NT news they have signed an all rounder called Josh Kann from Darwin via Queensland. Looking at his Aus U-19 & QLD U-23 scorecards looks like he was picked as a bowler but didn't bowl much. On Mycricket he has scored a lot of runs in first grade but not so much in the T20.

Caleb Jewell back too according to their Facebook page...

Edit: Though that is a re-signing not a new player.

Jewell joins Scott Boland, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Peter Handscomb, Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, Mitch Owen, Wil Parker, D’Arcy Short, Matthew Wade and Mac Wright as players currently contracted to the Hurricanes for KFC BBL|11.
At least they have all the important players signed anyway. Just nail the international signings for once!

Did very well with the bat in the Qld Premier Cricket T20 comp last season. Averaged 47 at strike rate of 197.5

Who would you recommend for our international signings?

Comes down to availability with the international schedule which I am not across.

I think Sandeep back would be ok as a spinner if the availability is there. He is exposed to the BBL now and not as effective as when he started but at least you know he is capable at the level which a lot of the international signings for Hobart across the years have not been.

Yeah, the majority of our internationals have been failures. Colin Ingram didn't do badly with the bat last year. I wouldn't mind us signing him again.

I'd say an Afghanistani spinner might be a chance for Hobart, seeing as the Afghans are coming over for a test, they should make the most of it. Zahir Khan or Qais Ahmed maybe?

I watched a bit of the T10 league or whatever it was in Dubai and some pretty ordinary stuff there. Even the guy that played for Heat and did ok was very questionable. I think Sandeep is a bit better than Ahmed based on their previous stints.

Given the whole Afghan team will claim asylum while on tour, should be a few blokes to choose from for T20 ;)

Paris a good replacement for Faulkner - lefty who swings the ball

No new signings for Hobart but they have locked some players in long term.

Wade until 2024
McDermott until 2024
Ellis until 2023

I've always thought it was surprising the Heat haven't come hard at McDermott, a good player to have locked in long term. Wade will be 36 at the end of his deal, maybe a year too many. Short would be the next guy they would want to get committed.
