BBL's Hobart Hurricanes sign Stuart Broad

England fast bowler Stuart Broad has been signed by Hobart Hurricanes for the upcoming season of Big Bash League (BBL).

Broad has joined the BBL team to reignite his international limited-over career. 

While Broad is an important part of the England Test team, being the no. 4 ranked Test bowler in the world he has been out of the ODI team for quite some time.

Broad said, 



From a personal point of view the BBL looks like a fantastic competition to be involved in. Australia is one of my favourite places to play, the pitches and the crowds make for great cricket and atmosphere is fantastic.
