Australian batsman Adam Voges, who played seven times for Hampshire in 2007, will captain the side with former Elite International Cricket Academy pair Ashton Turner and Ashton Agar also part of the squad.

Hampshire Director of Cricket, Giles White said: “He’s been outstanding for the last two of three years in T20 cricket, setting us up well early on in our innings and he’s played a big part in our success in the shorter format.

“It’s an exciting competition and exciting times for Carbs. He’s been working hard in the nets already so he will be ready to go when he starts.”

The Perth Scorchers begin their next BBL campaign with a home match against the Adelaide Strikers on 22 December.
