He’s big, he’s quick and he scares the hell out of batsman. He’s the Wild Thing and he’s back in BBL|03 with the Strikers.
Tait returned to his hometown after a stint with the Melbourne Renegades and he wound back the clock with some brilliant displays of fast bowling.
The big rig took nine wickets in BBL|02 at 14.44, with a damaging spell of 3/22 against the Sydney Thunder.
Taity has played 19 T20 internationals for Australia taking 28 wickets at 17.78. He has played 80 domestic T20 matches and has taken 103 wickets at 21.79. Holding the record for sending down the fastest delivery ever bowled by an Australian at 160.7km/h against Pakistan in early 2010, Shaun ‘The Wild Thing’ Tait has had a stellar career in the shorter format.
Taity says he’d probably be moving lawns and playing country football if he wasn’t a cricketer however he thinks being a major league baseball player would definitely come with its perks. He spends a lot of time on the road playing in T20 competitions and he’s a big deal in India, particularly because of his girlfriend Mashoom who is a model!
Shaun Tait is one of the most exciting T20 players in the world and it’s great to have him back home at the Strikers.
