Cameron Boyce returns to Adelaide Strikers


Former Australia T20 leg pinner Cameron Boyce returns to the club where he began his BBL journey and signs a two-year deal with Adelaide Strikers.

Boyce played six games with Strikers in 2012-13 before moving to Hobart Hurricanes for five seasons. He then made the move to Melbourne Renegades in 2018/19 when he was a crucial part of Renegades’ shock title. But he didn’t play at all in 2020/21 and came to just four games last season due to health issues.

He made history in his last game for Renegades, becoming the first bowler in the BBL to take four wickets in four balls, finishing with his career best score of 5 for 21 against Sydney Thunder.

Boyce, 33, said he was delighted to be returning to Adelaide.

“I’m so excited to get back to where my Big Bash journey began,” Boyce said. “I have enjoyed my time with the Strikers and am very happy to be back. For a tournament that is only 12 years old, experience is extremely valuable and I enjoy the idea of ​​working with players like Travis Head and Alex Carey Summer.

“I already have great relationships with many of the guys and I look forward to doing everything I can to bring Adelaide Oval another title.”

Strikers coach Jason Gillespie was thrilled to recruit a player with Boyce’s experience and could form an exciting legpin duo with Rashid Khan if Strikers can keep the superstar in the upcoming overseas draft.

“We are very happy that Cameron is returning to the Strikers,” said Gillespie. “He will bring a wealth of experience and expertise to our squad.

“Cameron is a proven Big Bash performer, with a BBL title just part of a prolific career highlighted by a large number of wickets. We look forward to welcoming Cameron to Adelaide and back to the Strikers family.”
