Lawrence to join Brisbane Heat for BBL 10

DL 

Dan Lawrence is set to join Brisbane Heat as an international replacement for Tom Banton for the start for the upcoming KFC Big Bash League, which begins on December 10.

The 23-year-old will fly out to Australia in mid-November and begin an isolation period upon arrival. Following that, he will link up with Darren Lehmann’s side ahead of their opening game against Melbourne Stars at The Manuka Oval on 11 December.

He’ll come up against a few Eagles teammates during his time in Australia, with Adam Zampa playing for Melbourne Stars and Peter Siddle representing Adelaide Strikers.

Ahead of his trip, Lawrence said: “I’m looking forward to meeting everyone at the Heat and working with the lads to get the team off to a good start.

“The BBL is a bit of a staple diet for us at home during our winter and it will be enormous to a part of the League there this summer.”
