The Perth Scorchers have signed New Zealand batsman Colin Munro for the 2020-21 Big Bash League season. Munro currently missed out on an NZC contract, but remains a rather sought-after T20 cricketer.
He is fifth on the ICC’s T20I ratings for batsmen, and his T20I strike charge of 156.44 is the fourth-highest among batsmen with at the least 500 runs. He turned into a key member of the Trinbago Knight Riders team that received the Caribbean Premier League in September, scoring 207 runs, which includes two fifties, at a strike charge of 133.54.
“To bounce on board with such a successful, set up club that has been playing high-quality cricket since the BBL commenced changed into virtually what appealed to me… it will be pretty special to be part of it,” Munro stated.
“The Scorchers have some global-elegance players of their listing, in an effort to rub shoulders with them this summer season is going to be sincerely thrilling.”
Munro joins the England pair of Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone in the Scorchers’ foreign places contingent. While Munro can be to be had thru the whole BBL season.
