Cricket Tasmania has today advised that Tasmanian Tigers and Australian fast bowler Jackson Bird will be returning to Hobart, after he experienced tightness in his left hamstring over the first two matches of the JLT One-Day Cup.

Cricket Tasmania Physiotherapist Stewart Williamson said “Jackson was able to play in Tasmania’s first match against New South Wales, but he reported an increase in tightness following yesterday’s match against Victoria.

“He’ll now return to Hobart to undergo rehabilitation and is expected to be available for the opening round of the JLT Sheffield Shield commencing on October 26,” concluded Williamson.

A replacement for Bird in the Tasmanian Tigers JLT One-Day Cup Squad will be confirmed in due course.
