Jason Floros has been included in Brisbane Heat’s squad for 2014-15 big bash as Nick Buchanan is injured. Fast bowler Buchanan is facing a hip injury which ruled-out him from fourth edition of BBL beginning from 18th December.
As per Big Bash League contracting guidelines if a player replaces another player then he will have to play the next match for team and will be included in squad as 11th or 12th man. Floros is off-spinning all-rounder who could be the vital player for Brisbane Heat in the tournament. Jason Floros had played big bash league for Sydney Thunder in previous three editions.
Brisbane Heat coach Stuart Law said, “It’s great to have ‘Flo’ with us as he did a nice job for the Bulls during the Matador Cup and is a proven campaigner in the BBL. But in saying that, we all feel for ‘Buck’.”
“It is very hard for him, to have done all of the hard work, to have overcome injury and got back to playing cricket, only to hurt himself so close to the event. He’s great kid and has shown admirable character with his recovery. We wish him the best again for his operation and his recovery.”
