The Adelaide strikes and Melbourne Renegades have signed some big names ahead of this year’s WBBL.
Striker’s leading run-scorer last season, Laura Wolvaardt makes a comeback to the squad. She piled up 347 runs last year for the Adelaide strikers including two fifties.
Laura Wolvaardt on coming back to the Striker’s camp – “I’m so excited to be returning to the Strikers. I loved every second of the Big Bash last year. The tournament is fantastic to be a part of and I couldn’t have asked for a better team. It’s such a great group of girls and I felt like I learned so much from the coaches last season. I can’t wait to start!”
Sarah Coyte has signed for a fifth season with the Strikers this year! A medium pacer and a handy lower-order batter, Sarah has taken the joint highest wickets in a season – eighteen.
Sarah on her excitement about this season – “I am so pumped for the season; Striker time is my favorite time of year. We have such a great group and I have been looking forward to this all year. I can’t wait to see our fans again in person and celebrate another awesome WBBL season.”
Meanwhile, the Melbourne Renegades have got Ellie Falconer to sign a three-year deal with them. The fast bowler finished as the leading wicket-taker of the Statewide Super First Grade competition picking up 17 wickets for West Torrens.
Coyte on her contract with the Melbourne Renegades – “I’m looking forward to this season and being a Renegade. It’s been nice to have a full pre-season of training after missing a season of cricket. I see myself as an attacking bowler and I’ve been working on my pace, hitting the deck hard and trying to get a bit of bounce. I haven’t played a WBBL game yet, so that’s the first goal for me.”
