Matthew Wade, who was Australia’s hero against Pakistan in the semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup, has taken an indefinite break from the ongoing season of the Big Bash League due to personal reasons. The skipper of the Hobart Hurricanes has amassed 177 runs in 9 games so far in this BBL season with the highest score of 93.
Hobart Hurricanes coach Adam Griffith confirmed that Wade will be out of the remaining matches with no information about his return yet. Hobart are fourth in the points table with four wins from nine matches.
“He’s okay. It’s just something he’s working through at the moment. We don’t really have a timeline just as yet, but we’re hopeful of having him back at the back-end of the tournament.” Hurricanes coach Adam Griffith told reporters as quoted by The West Australian.
