Australia quick Andrew Tye rejoins Gloucestershire for T20 Blast

by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Australia fast bowler Andrew Tye has agreed to rejoin Gloucestershire for this season’s Vitality T20 Blast.

The 32-year-old impressed for the county in the competition as an overseas player both last season and in 2016, taking 31 wickets in 25 matches for the county.

“I’m delighted to be returning,” he said. “It’s a great club with a lot of good people and I thoroughly enjoyed last season. I’m looking forward to contributing again to the club’s T20 campaign and hopefully we can build on last season and go all the way to win the trophy in 2019.”

Tye is currently part of the Australia A tour of England and has been in fine form as of late, picking up six wickets in ten overs in their One-Day match against Derbyshire on Sunday. He also impressed in the 2018-19 BBL earlier, picking up 17 wickets for Perth Scorchers at 22.94.

He will be available for Gloucestershire’s opening Blast fixture against Glamorgan at Cheltenham on 19th July.
