In the latest development for the Big Bash League, Aussie pacer Cameron Boyce has signed a two-year contract with Adelaide Strikers. Boyce will look to replace Fawad Ahmed who was leading the pace attack in the last season.
Boyce is expected to partner along with the Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan who has been a crucial part of the Strikers team for a while now. The team will look to get Rashid Khan in the BBL’s first overseas draft for the upcoming season.
Although Boyce has played just 7 T20Is and picked 8 wickets but he has a pretty good experience of T20 cricket. In 88 T20 matches, Boyce has picked 97 wickets at an economy of 7.55.
On his signing, Boyce said, “being able to go back to the Strikers, they were the first team that signed me and showed that bit of faith in me, I'm really excited to be able to go down and repay that.”
In the BBL 2021-22, Adelaide Strikers finished at the 4th spot on the points table and got defeated by Sydney Sixers in the Challenger match.
Adelaide Strikers was the first team to give Boyce his first ever BBL contract in the 2012-13 season. He became the first bowler in BBL history to take a double hat-trick when he was part of the Melbourne Renegades camp.
