The Melbourne Stars will welcome back English all-rounder Luke Wright for BBL|02.
The Englishman proved to be an important pickup for the Stars in the inaugural season of the BBL amassing a mammoth 239 runs at an average of 39.33 and spearheading the top of the order.
The 26-year-old provided the highlight of the tournament when he blasted 117 from 60 against the Hobart Hurricanes, toppling records for the highest score and fastest century in Australian T20 history.
The lively all-rounder added to the Stars’ bowling attack, picking up two wickets and drying up runs with his medium-fast pace bowling.
Luke comes to the Stars this summer with proven international form. He was electric for England in the 2012 ICC World T20. He cracked six sixes and eight fours on the way to his highest T20 score for england, 99 not out and also led England to an important victory over New Zealand with a crushing 76 runs.
Together with his gorgeous wife Rebecca and young son Joshua, he will settle in Melbourne for the summer to again be apart of the Stars family.
