BBL 2019 - James Vince Re-Signs With Sydney Sixers

England batsman James Vince has been re-signed for the upcoming Big Bash League (BBL) season nine with Sydney Sixers on Wednesday.

Vince has captained for Hampshire ( England’s county cricket competition) and also played the second half of BBL season eight last summer as a replacement for countryman Joe Denly and impressed the Team Management with 269 runs at an average of 44.83 and a strike rate above 136.

“I’m delighted to be returning to the Sixers for BBL season nine. My family and I were made to feel very welcome at the Sixers and had a wonderful time living in Sydney. The SCG is an amazing stadium to play at and we had some great support their last season. I look forward to more of the same this season,” Vince said.

“Having lost out in the semis in BBL|08 I’m hoping we can go all the way this time around. There is a huge amount of talent in the squad and some great people at the club. I’m looking forward to contributing to what is hopefully going to be a great BBL for the Sixers,” he added.

Sydney Sixers Greg Shipperd said Vince earned plenty of admiration during his eight-game stint in BBL08.

“We are delighted to have secured James Vince as our second international player for the coming season. He made a huge impression within our group through his consistent performance in the vital number three position that assisted the team reaching the semi-finals,” Shipperd said.

The upcoming BBL season will commence from December 17 and Sixers will play their first match against Perth Scorchers on December 18.
