“The ‘Canes have been one of the strongest teams in the competition over the past couple of seasons, so to have a small opportunity to be a part of and contribute to that environment where required is something I’m really looking forward to,” he added.
Cricket Tasmania’s CEO, Dominic Baker, said it was a coup to be able to add the name of Paine to the Hurricane’s 2020-21 roster.
“We are thrilled to be able to welcome Tim back to the Hurricanes this year,” Baker said.
“As obviously the Australian summer is a very busy time for all cricketers – no more so than the Australian captain – Tim won’t be able to be with the squad for their entire BBL 10 campaign due to his international commitments. However, we believe what he brings the team from an experience perspective is invaluable, and he will be a great asset for the continual off-field development of our group as well,” he added.
