The Hobart Hurricanes on Tuesday (September 13) confirmed that Tremain has been roped in as the latest domestic signing for this year's BBL.

Tremain, who played four one-day internationals for Australia in 2016 and was on the cusp of making his debut for the Australian Test team in 2018-19, joins the Hurricanes following a second stint with Sydney Thunder. 

In his BBL career, Tremain has scalped 41 BBL wickets from 49 games played, at an average of 33.39 and economy of 8.14 with the best figures of 3-9.

Tremain ready for his new spell with the Hurricanes 

"I’m really looking forward to wearing purple this year. When you’ve got names like Ricky Ponting, Jeff Vaughan, Darren Berry, and James Hopes involved in a team and they ask if you want to be a part of it, it’s a pretty enticing proposition. 

The Hurricanes obviously have a really strong bowling group so I think there’ll be strong competition for spots, but that is only going to make us more competitive both as individuals and as a team unit," said Chris Tremain.

Tremain brings a wealth of experience and promise to a new look Hurricanes pace bowling stocks for this year's Big Bash which struggled throughout BBL 11 due to injury.
