Strikers sign English international

12 January 2022

Adelaide Strikers have secured the services of English batter Ian Cockbain for the remainder of the KFC BBL|11 season.

A member of the Gloucestershire squad since 2010, the experienced batter has 57 First Class and 68 List A matches to his name.  The Liverpool native has proven himself as a capable middle-order batter, with 18 half centuries and a top score of 123 from 135 T20 appearances.  Hailing from Gloucestershire, the 34-year-old is no stranger to Adelaide. The Englishman joined East Torrens Cricket Club in 2014 for back to back seasons, returning in season 2019/20 to take part in the club’s One-Day title. Most recently Cockbain represented the Welsh Fire in The Hundred.  Cockbain will be available for selection beginning with tomorrow's match against the Perth Scorchers at Adelaide Oval.
