Hurricanes suffer big blow

HOBART Hurricanes' left-arm fast bowler Tymal Mills will miss the rest of the BBL season because of injury.

The English import suffered a recurrence of a hamstring strain during his fourth over in the Hurricanes' practice match with Auckland last week.

The club said last night Mills' expected time-frame for recovery was up to eight weeks.

"This comes at a really unfortunate time for Tymal," Hurricanes head coach Adam Griffith said.

"He was bowling well and feeling really good as a result of playing cricket throughout the year leading up to the Big Bash season."

The Hurricanes will now seek to fill Mills' place in the squad with an injury replacement player.
