Shaun Tait

A former Adelaide Strikers player and Melbourne Renegade, 33-year old Tait brings a wealth of limited overs experience in his return to the Hurricanes line-up for BBL06.

Nicknamed the ‘Wild Thing’, Tait is known as one of the fastest bowlers in the world and he holds the record for the second fastest delivery of all time, registering a ball at 161.1kph which he bowled at Lords against England in 2010.

Hurricanes Coach Damien Wright says it’s great to have Tait in the purple and on our side with the speedster bringing an unrivaled fear factor to the Hurricanes line-up.
