Birmingham Phoenix men have added fast bowler Ben Dwarshuis to their squad, in replace of Adam Milne who has been ruled out of the competition with an achilles injury.

The 28-year-old is due to arrive from Australia on Monday and will join up with the squad ahead of Friday’s home match against Northern Superchargers at Edgbaston.

Born in Kareela, New South Wales, Dwarshuis will add a left-arm option to a bowling attack that’s helped secure two wins from the opening three games.

A T20 international and Big Bash regular for Sydney Sixers, Dwarshuis also played in the T20 Blast with Worcestershire last year. In total, he has 117 wickets in 83 T20 matches.

Craig Flindall, Birmingham Phoenix General Manager, said “We’re really pleased to be able to recruit such an experienced fast bowler in Ben. Naturally, we’re disappointed that Adam couldn’t feature for us this year, but Ben will add a left-arm option to our exciting group.”
