CRICKET Tasmania has today confirmed that Mark Cosgrove has quit the Tasmanian Tigers after accepting a two year deal with his native South Australia.
The left-handed opener informed CT of his decision yesterday evening, with Cricket Tasmania believing he has chosen to move back to Adelaide for personal reasons and to be closer to family and friends.
Cricket Tasmania General Manager of Cricket Andrew Dykes said it was disappointing to see Cosgrove go.
``Mark was an integral part of the Tiger's team over the past four seasons,'' Dykes said.
``Mark's skill with the bat at the top of the order was a big contributor to Tasmania's 2010/11 and 2012/13 Sheffield Shield wins.''
