Big Bash League: English trio get one more game

Tymal Mills, Sam Billings and Saqib Mahmood will get to play in one more Big Bash League match on Thursday before they jet off on a tour of the West Indies with England.

Perth Scorchers are priced at 7/4 to win BBL11 and they will be delighted to have pace bowler Mills for the clash against the Sydney Thunder, who also get to play Sam Billings and Saqib Mahmood.

Added bonus

All three players were due to depart Australia and join up with the England Twenty20 squad that is set to head to the Caribbean but now they will leave on Friday.

The Scorchers will be delighted to have Mills but will be up against star batsman Billings who won the man-of-the-match award in Thunder's recent win - Perth's only defeat of BBL11 so far.

Scorchers allrounder Ashton Agar says they are well aware of what they are up against.

"He’s a beautiful player and he played really well against us the other night," Agar said. "We need to make him hit really good shots off really good balls and make it as hard as possible as the start of his innings, try to squeeze him and create pressure to get him that way.

"He’s world class and sometimes those guys get on a bit of a run, so we just need to execute better and put him under some pressure."


Meanwhile Agar also praised the strength-in-depth of the Scorchers which was on show as they beat the Sydney Sixers on Tuesday.

With no Mitch Marsh available Aaron Hardie scored a career-high 45 off 24 deliveries.

"It was really pleasing, I’m super pleased for Aaron Hardie who has been working so hard in the nets," Agar added. "He’s incredibly strong, really skilful and he’s got this maturity beyond that’s beyond his years. He showed all of that last night and played a match-winning innings."
