Townsville Bulletin



SAM Billings fielded for England in the fourth Test against India at the Oval this week alongside a raft of players who are weighing up whether to travel to Australia for the Ashes.

But the would-be Test keeper has no concerns about quarantine or travel restrictio­ns and has signed on to join several of his countrymen in the Big Bash.

Billings will join Alex Hales at Sydney Thunder. James Vince will play at the Sydney Sixers, where England bowler Tom Curran is also signed, painting a picture of extreme willingnes­s to make the trip to Australia.
