Mitchell Johnson is going around in the BBL again, with the Perth Scorchers locking him in for another season.

He will return for a second campaign, after helping the Scorchers to the BBL title last season with 13 wickets, the fourth-most in the competition.

That included 3/3 off four overs against the Stars in the semi-final with the crucial wickets of Rob Quiney, Luke Wright and Kevin Pietersen.

"Returning for another season is a pretty easy decision when you’ve got a team like the Perth Scorchers," he told the BBL website.

"Not only have they played well over the years, but they’re also a great bunch of blokes."

Johnson said he was still motivated to keep playing, despite winning BBL and IPL titles in the previous 12 months.

“If I’m honest and look at what happened last year – winning the BBL title with the Scorchers and then winning the Indian Premier League with the Mumbai Indians – I should probably retire on a high, but Twenty20 is more and more becoming a game that the older guys can play," he said.

“I also feel like there’s some unfinished business.

“I want to help the team go back-to-back and, given this is the last season at the WACA Ground, I really can’t wait to get back out there and enjoy the atmosphere the amazing crowd creates.”
