Nathan Ellis has made his T20 Australian debut in the just concluded Bangladesh series. And started his career in rivetting fashion getting a hattrick in the 19th over of the 3rd T20I. He had an exceptional last one season and has proved to be a wicket-taker in the T20 format with 38 wickets in just 33 matches. Punjab Kings rope in Nathan Ellis, Jhye & Meredith ruled out of IPL.
Ellis played for Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash getting 35 wickets at 19 strike rate. And 8 economy which is a striking record.

The Punjab Kings management is looking for another replacement player whom they will shortly announce in a day or two .
