Hobart Hurricanes were dealt an injury blow with England left arm fast bowler Tymal Mills being ruled out of the 2018-19 Big Bash League. Mills, whose troubled hamstring has worried him in the past – including last season for the Hurricanes – has experienced a recurrence of it and is expected to be out for close to eight weeks.

The injury reportedly took place during a warm-up game between Hurricanes and Auckland Aces, following which Mills did not play the first game of the season for Hurricanes, against Brisbane Heat on Saturday.

“This comes at a really unfortunate time for Tymal,” Adam Griffith, the Hurrcanes’ head coach, said. “He was bowling well and feeling really good as a result of playing cricket throughout the year leading up to the Big Bash season.”
