How fast has Mills been wanging it down?

Good news if Archer is available next year.

If anyone is interested the next hurricanes game is on BTsport 2 on Wednesday morning (from 8:40) and him and Mills are both likely to play.

Watched just about every BBL match so far, including the Hurricanes - Archer looks like a genuine prospect, easy pace off a short run-up and decent control as well. Mills looks pretty shithouse though, to be honest.

it's t20 so the economy is all over the place but I like that he seems to be really trying to take wickets with every ball.  I hope that's not a trait we train out of him.

Mills has had a tough time for them so far, Archer is outshining him completely.

On international stuff, having atched them a couple of times now I'd be amazed if the aussies don't call d'arcy short up, he's been brilliant, scored a superb century this morning.

On a domestic matter, was Higgins the one who scored a load for Middlesex on T20 Finals day the other year? I ask because Gloucestershire have signed him. Klinger and Tye are in for T20 as well.

Klinger been a top player for a while but Tye is gonna be some player. certainly at T20 and maybe other white ball cricket.
Seems to take wickets for fun in T20 for Perth Scorchers. He isn't some young kid though he's 31 now.
Made his T20 Australia debut some time in 2016

He did T20 for us that year but was injured last season. Not anything close to an ardent Big Bash watcher but he seems to have improved from what I have seen.

I thought he had a 7 year wait (so 2022-23) but maybe wrong.
As he was resident in this country under age of 18 qualification period is 4 years. 7 years for other age groups etc.

Just coming back to this I am pretty certain he came after he turned 18, so it is 7 yrs.
