English all-rounder Luke Wright had another strong tournament for the Melbourne Stars at the top of the batting order in BBL|02.
He was a solid contributor amassing 163 runs in seven innings at an average of 27, but it was his 53 in the opening match that set the tone for the Stars’ tournament.
The right-arm fast-medium bowler added another string to the bowling attack despite limited opportunities with the ball given the return of John Hastings following injury.
The 27-year-old came to the Stars this summer on the back of electric form with England at the 2012 ICC World T20, where he hit a high score of 99 not out and was named in the Team of the Tournament.
Contracted until the end of BBL|03, the Stars look forward to welcoming Luke, along with his wife Rebecca and young son Joshua, back to the Stars family in BBL|03.
He provides options for the team as he can play any role through the middle to finishing overs. We are extremely pleased to have him as one of our foundation players.
