We feel that he is the perfect match for us not only to help the team but also for the local youngsters to excel in this high voltage format.’

Under Vettori, Middlesex also reached the last 8 stage for the first time since 2008. Brisbane Heat also made it to the semi-final in the 2016-17 season under Vettori . It was their best record after becoming the champion of Big Bash in 2012-13.
