The 26 year old England pacer was suppose to play for Hobart Hurricanes for the second consecutive year but due to his hamstring injury he has been ruled out for eight weeks.The pacer picked this injury during a practice match on Thursday.

Mills is disappointed to miss the Australian T20 league and he expressed his views on Twitter. He said,’Arrived out here in probably the best shape of my career so to go down before the tournament had begun is so disappointing. Backing the boys all the way and will be supporting from back home.’

Really unfortunate time for Mills: Griffith

Adam Griffith, the Hobart Hurrcanes’ head coach stated that this comes at a really unfortunate time for Tymal. He noted that the pace bowler was bowling well and feeling really good as a result of playing cricket throughout the year leading up to the Big Bash season.

Mills was injured during his fourth over in the practice game against Auckland Aces on Thursday. And due to this injury he missed the match against Brisbane Heat on Saturday.

However he has a long history of injuries and hence he has focused his energies on playing the shortest format of the game.

He has featured for Sussex in the T20 Blast, Chittagong Vikings in the Bangladesh Premier League, Quetta Gladiators and Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League, Brisbane Heat and Hobart Hurricanes in the BBL, and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League.
