24-year-old Girton had a great summer for Sussex and Southern Brave. Starring in their eliminator victory Beyond the torrent rockets, we’re helping them claim their first title. He was one of Hundred’s leading wicket takers, claiming 10 scalps in nine games, and later joined the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the second half of the IPL as a replacement for Kane Richardson.
Girton has already co-starred with Travishead, Alex Carrie and Lassi Hahn in Sussex and is excited to sign the Striker’s.
“I’m really excited to be part of the Adelaide Striker, a club with such a successful history in Big Bash,” Girton said.
Striker coach Jason Gillespie has been targeting Girton for some time and believes he will add valuable versatility to Adelaide’s attack after Michael Neser loses to Brisbane Heat.
“George has been on the English radar for some time,” Gillespie said. “He hits the ball fast with his left arm. He can swing a new ball. That’s great. He is an aggressive left fielder who can clear the rope and will be one of the best fielders in the world at the moment. He is the top drawer.
“In the middle order, we found that having batting and bowling options was very helpful to us. It’s nice to have a lot of great top order options, but this is an area we can do. Please strengthen within our team. ”
