Tymal Mills, a fast bowler for the Perth Scorchers, the most successful team in Big Bash League history, has been ruled out of the competition due to a family issue, causing the squad to endure another setback before defending their title in the 12th BBL.
The Scorchers, who set a record by winning their fourth championship last summer, replaced English batter and BBL Grand Final hero Laurie Evans, who quit the team after testing positive for doping, with South African star Faf Du Plessis. Due to a shoulder ailment, Phil Salt was unable to compete in the event earlier this month.

The Club Fully Supports Tymal Mills’ Decision
Tymal Mills’ absence was addressed in a statement released by the Perth Scorchers, who also backed his decision. A substitute international player is being sought after.
“The Club fully supports Mills’ decision, and sends its thoughts and best wishes to his family during this time. Perth is exploring its options to recruit a replacement international player.”

After having ankle surgery, Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh was also disqualified from the BBL. Adam Lyth, a former England Test opener, was appointed last week as Salt’s replacement. Although Stephen Eskinazi has a full-season deal, Lyth and du Plessis are only available for the first half of the season.
Jhye Richardson is also recovering well from a toe injury, and as he approaches his return against the Sixers on Tuesday, he bowled at full speed on Monday. Despite working quickly to locate a substitute for Mills, the Scorchers won’t have the player available for Saturday’s season opener.
