The Sydney Sixers welcome Englishman Chris Tremlett into the club for BBL|03 as he joins the Sixers’ fast bowling ranks already including the likes of Mitchell Starc, Brett Lee, Josh Hazlewood and Trent Copeland. Having played for England in 11 Tests and 15 ODIs and with a successful County cricket career already spanning 13 years, he is sure to bring a wealth of experience to the Sixers squad.
After a successful 2013 county season with Surrey, including taking the career best figures of 8/96 against Durham in August, the 31-year-old is again pushing for national selection ahead of the return Ashes Series in Australia in November.
A towering fast-bowler, who wouldn’t look out of place playing AFL on the Sydney Cricket Ground in the Australian winter, was destined to play cricket for England – with an impressive family cricket history. He is the son of Tim Tremlett, the former Hampshire seamer and the grandson of Maurice Tremlett who also played for England.
The last time Chris played in Australia it was for England in the 2010 Ashes Series when he put the cleaners through the Australian batsmen - finishing the series with 17 wickets from 3 matches. This year, Sixers fans will be hoping he’ll be wearing the magenta when dishing out the punishment on his opponents.
