Chris Duval, the fast bowler, will go back to his home in South Australia and join the Redbacks for next season.

"It should come as no surprise that we have looked to find someone who will provide more support and experience to our bowling group next season," Mark Sorell, the South Australia coach, said. "Chris' on-field ability and his off-field contributions make him a perfect fit for the Redbacks' immediate and long-term needs."

Duval has played seven first-class matches, taking 13 wickets at 47.92, and has made as many one-day appearances, with four wickets at 88.25. He is a native of South Australia but was chosen by Tasmania in 2004.

"Playing with the Tigers has been a great experience and I am indebted to the TCA [Tasmanian Cricket Association] for the support they have given me," Duval said. "But the option to come home and also continue my cricket career was just too tempting and the timing couldn't be more perfect."
