Shah commits to Hurricanes return
Essex batsman Owais Shah has signed a new two-year contract for Big Bash League outfit Hobart Hurricanes in Australia.
The 33-year-old scored 282 runs at an average of 70.50 as the Hurricanes reached the semi-finals of the Twenty20 competition last winter.
"It was disappointing to fall in the semi-finals but I can't question the professionalism of the squad and coaching staff at the Hobart Hurricanes," said Shah.
"I loved living in Hobart with my family and when the time came to decide I really had no hesitation in committing to the Hurricanes again.
"I think there's a strong feeling of unfinished business within the squad and I'm looking forward to getting back amongst the boys and preparing as best we can for the next campaign."
