Perth Scorchers pacer Tymal Mills pull out of BBL|12; here’s the reason


England’s left-arm fast bowler Tymal Mills, who is a key member of Perth Scorchers squad in the Big Bash League (BBL), will not play in BBL|12. He has opted out of Australia’s premier T20 league citing personal reasons.

The 30-year-old Mills was recruited by Scorchers in the inaugural BBL|12 Draft after playing a crucial role during their title-winning campaign last summer.

Mills has informed the Perth franchise about his family emergency and they are now looking for a replacement player.

“The club fully supports Mills’ decision and sends its thoughts and best wishes to his family during this time. Perth is exploring its options to recruit an international replacement player,” Perth Scorchers said in a statement.

The defending champions are set to open their BBL|12 campaign on Saturday (December 17) against Sydney Sixers.

Mills made his T20 International (T20I) debut against Sri Lanka, finishing with 0-22 as England won the match by eight wickets. He tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend India-Kate McLaven on October 5, 2019.

Mills and Kate have two kids – Delphi Laine Mills (daughter) and Caelan Cole Mills (son). The couple keeps on posting pictures and videos of their little babies on social media.

Perth Scorchers squad for BBL|12:

Ashton Agar, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, Cooper Connolly, Cameron Green, Laurie Evans (contract terminated), Aaron Hardie, Peter Hatzoglou, Nick Hobson, Josh Inglis, Matthew Kelly, Mitch Marsh (injured), Lance Morris, Jhye Richardson, Phil Salt (injured), Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Faf du Plessis (replacing Laurie Evans, first seven matches only), Adam Lyth (replacing Phil Salt, first half only), Stephen Eskinazi, Hamish McKenzie.
