Kann signs first BBL contract with the Hurricanes

25 August 2021

Josh Kann is the latest burgeoning domestic talent to join the KFC Big Bash League, signing with the Hobart Hurricanes on a one-year deal.

The 21-year-old hails from Queensland, where he plays for the Gold Coast District Cricket Club in the Queensland Premier Cricket League.

Most recently, the tall, hard-hitting allrounder – who also bowls right arm pace - has been plying his trade in the Northern Territory, representing the Southern Storm in the TIO Men’s Strike League.

Kann, who has previously represented Australia at Under 19 and Queensland at Under 23 level, said he was thrilled at the opportunity to sign with the Hurricanes.

“This is my first professional contract, which is obviously something every player dreams of and works towards.

“I’m just looking forward to getting down there and learning as much as I can from the other players and coaching staff.  I’ll be looking to play my role and contribute to the squad in whatever way I can.”

Kann joins Scott Boland, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Peter Handscomb, Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, Mitch Owen, Joel Paris, Wil Parker, D’Arcy Short, Matthew Wade and Mac Wright as players currently contracted to the Hurricanes for KFC BBL|11.
