Brisbane Heat and Queensland Bulls players Max Bryant, James Bazley, Jack Clayton and Hugo Burdon, as well as big-hitting Norths batsman Josh Brown and Gold Coast allrounder Josh Kann will feature in the CDU Men’s Strike League component of the 2022 Northern Territory Cricket365 program

The four-team competition, a mixture of 50-over and T20 games, runs from June 26 to August 7 in Darwin.

Bryant, Bazley and Clayton all played for the Heat in last season's competition while Gold Coast allrounder Burdon, the second leading runs-scorer in the 2021-22 KFC Queensland Premier League, was a local replacement player for the Heat.

Kann also made his BBL debut for the Hobart Hurricanes after impressing in last year's Strike League.

Brown was a stand-by player for the Heat during a 10-day period in the BBL when Brisbane had effectively an entire sidelined due to COVID-19.

Queensland Premier Cricket Club Coach Brad Murphy (Valley) returns to the City Cyclones head coach role for 2022 after relocating to Darwin for the winter cricket season.

Heat head coach Wade Seccombe said the players would enjoy a valuable opportunity to improve their T20 skills.

"Nothing beats playing time, and this will give all of those players heading to Darwin a great chance to work on their game in a competitive environment,'' he said.

Burdon will turn out for the Cyclones, Bryant will play for the Desert Blaze, Brown and Bazley will link with the Northern Tide and Clayton and Kann are in the Southern Storm line-up.
