Clive’s back, and Nathan’s front!

27 November 2019

We’re pleased to announce the re-signing of crowd favourite Clive Rose and signing of young gun Nathan Ellis for the upcoming KFC BBL|09 season.

Much-loved spinner Clive has been part of the squad since KFC BBL|05, and through the years has built a healthy wicket haul and a strong fan following.

As a left arm orthodox bowler, Clive has been of increasing value to the squad collecting 18 wickets for the Hurricanes in the last four seasons with an economy rate of 7.92.
With a Big Bash League career best of 2/11, he brings much needed experience to the squad with his crafty and deceptive bowling intelligence, that compliments his ability as a crucial wicket taker.

The Hobart Hurricanes have also brought some fresh talent into the side with Nathan Ellis set to don the purple this season.
After making the move to Tasmania in 2017, Nathan, a 25-year-old pace bowler, made his mark for the Tasmanian Tigers after debuting in the 2019/20 season.
He collected a very impressive 3/35 on debut for the Tigers and then 5/38 against NSW Blues in October.

His brilliant efforts in the Cricket Tasmania Premier League certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed after collecting an astounding 9/30 for his local club Lindisfarne in just 11.1 overs.
The paceman will be an excellent asset to the Hobart Hurricanes KFC BBL|09 list with his ability to find quick wickets early on and determination to face every challenge that comes his way.

Clive and Nathan round out the KFC BBL|09 squad of 18 for the Hobart Hurricanes. The full squad is:
Qais Ahmad (OS)
