James Faulkner insulted after leaving Hobart

James Faulkner

Former Australia all-rounder James Faulkner has been insulted after leaving Hobart Hurricanes, and feels shattered which has led to his departure from the Hobart Hurricanes.

It was “very insulting” :-

Faulkner, 31, will not play for the Hobart Hurricanes this year, and doesn’t have much imagination to fully play in the BBL, turning down a one-year contract offer he claims was “very humiliating”.

Faulkner discussed San Hobart in an interview with his close friend and Australia Test captain Tim Paine, the show’s co-guest.

“When I first heard it on the phone, I found it really hard to take,” James said. “I find it deeply humiliated for what I have given to Tasmanian cricket.

“I know what I’m worth. I’ve signed enough concussions around the world for different teams. I didn’t want any more. I just wanted what was fair and what I thought I was worth and Maybe even a little less. But it just goes back to that first occasion. I didn’t feel prestigious as a sportsperson or as a person or a Tasmanian athlete.”


James Faulkner last played international cricket for Australia in 2017, joining the Hurricanes in his home state of Tasmania, on a three-year deal with the Melbourne Stars after seven years in the 2018–19 BBL season, the previous season.

Their tournament ended in December :-

He has been battling multiple injuries since the end of his international career and has played only 12 out of 29 matches in the last two BBL seasons. He suffered a severe hamstring injury last season, which ended his tournament in December. Faulkner said it was disproportionate to the injuries used against him in the talks.

“I have contacted the teams, but the objective we have is that there was a moratorium period with Cricket Australia and it is published that you cannot speak during that time,” Faulkner said.

“And obviously because the negotiations for the deal were so long that the teams clearly wanted to sign their list. So I was stuck six months down the line.

“I didn’t want to play for any other franchise anyway. The whole reason I came to the Hurricanes was to end up here and play in front of my family and friends and play with some of my best teammates with whom I have great memories and It’s very disappointing if that doesn’t happen.”

Interference only applies to binding agreements :-

However, teams, players and agents are instinctively allowed to talk during the ban period and often do. Interference only applies to binding agreements which means that no contract can be signed spontaneously.

James will now trade in various leagues around the world. He did well in this year’s PSL for Lahore Qalandars, taking 13 wickets in six matches at an economy rate of 6.50. He would also like to play in the Abu Dhabi T10 and the Lanka Premier League.
