Pakistan batsman Shoaib Malik, has signed Hobart Hurricanes for the upcoming season of the Big Bash League. This will be Malik's first stint even in the Australian T20 league.

Damian Wright, the Hurricanes coach said, "He's an exciting player, a fast paced batsman who will likely bat in our middle order and he'll add another option to our bowling stocks as well, He is a quality player with a quality T20 record and his performances in the Caribbean Premier League suggest he's in red-hot form right now."

The 31-year-old Malik has played 134 Twenty20 matches with 3396 runs at a strike rate of 123.31.

"Those are impressive stats for someone who has played so many games in a format where you often have to place little value on your wicket in search of quick runs at the end of an innings," Wright said.
