The Melbourne Stars welcome local spinner Clive Rose to their squad for BBL|02.
The Left-Arm Orthodox Spinner has been on coach Greg Shipperd's radar for some time after watching him progress through the underage Victorian squads and the Australian U19 team for the World Cup in 2008.
Last year, Rose stepped away from his university studies working a casual job while focusing on cricket and reaped the rewards with Victorian selection.
He made his One-Day debut for the Bushrangers and claimed the highest honour in Premier Cricket, the 2011-12 Jack Ryder Medal.
The 23-year-old’s cricketing heroes are Wasim Akram and Shane Warne; he is delighted for the chance to call one of them a teammate this summer.
