Women’s Big Bash League team Melbourne Stars have signed England cricketers Katherine Brunt and Nat Sciver for the upcoming season.
Sciver represented Stars in the starting two seasons of the WBBL and went on to play for the Perth Scorchers for the next two editions. Brunt has played for the Perth Scorchers from the last three season and she will move to Stars.
Stars’ newly appointed coach Trent Woodhill is looking forward to working with the duo for the upcoming season as he said:
“In Nat and Katherine, we’ve got two of England’s most successful cricketers who have been part of the WBBL since the tournament began,”
“We’re pleased to have Nat coming back into green again after a couple of seasons in Perth and Katherine’s experience and bowling pedigree needs no introduction.
“It really enhances what is already a good team coming together.”
Cricket Australia is yet to release, venues, and complete schedule of the tournament in the coming days.
Melbourne Stars squad: Meg Lanning, Katherine Brunt, Nat Sciver, Elyse Villani, Mignon du Preez, Annabel Sutherland, Lucy Cripps, Alana King, Holly Ferling, Erin Osborne, Tess Flintoff, Georgia Gall, Sophie Day, Nicole Faltum.
