Bowler Tayla Vlaeminick will play for Hobart Hurricanes in WBBL05

A fully fit Tayla Vlaeminck to join the Hobart Hurricanes to continue her Rebel WBBL|05 career in purple after an injury-plagued stint with the Melbourne Renegades. The 20-year-old took four wickets for the Renegades in her long-awaited WBBL debut last summer, before a knee injury sustained at training cut short her season after six matches.

One of the fastest bowlers in the game and a member of Australia’s National Performance Squad, Vlaeminck has already proved herself on the world stage.

“We identified the need to add some more pace to complement our attack and Tayla definitely brings that,” Hurricanes head coach Salliann Briggs said. “We’re really pleased one of the rising stars of Australian cricket will continue her development as a Hurricanes player,” he added.

Australia all-rounder Ellyse Perry said, “I’ve seen her in the nets (at Junction Oval) quite a few times now and I’ve had a chance to see just how she’s worked with her rehab over the last couple of months. She’s incredibly positive about everything, it’s quite infectious in a lot of ways.”
