Following her recent announcement that she will be retiring from international cricket, Deandra Dottin has signed a deal to play with the Adelaide Strikers in the 2017 Women’s Big Bash League.
The former all-rounder for the West Indies ended her international career by pointing out that there were issues with “the team culture and environment.” This effectively ended her participation in international competition. She did, however, indicate that she will continue to be available to play domestic cricket in any of the world’s countries. Dottin has competed in the league for both the Perth Scorchers and the Brisbane Heat. In total, he has played in 29 matches, during which he has accumulated 424 runs and taken 17 wickets.
With more than 250 international appearances across T20 and ODI cricket, such as multiple World Cups, as well as caps in the Hundred and WBBL, Deandra will be a fantastic addition to our squad, Strikers head coach Luke Williams said. “Deandra is a match-winner who will bring big game experience and elite performance to Adelaide this summer,” Williams said. “With more than 250 international appearances across T20 and ODI cricket, including multiple World Cups, as well as caps in the
“I cannot express how eager I am to get to Adelaide and participate in the WBBL once more. The Strikers have a fantastic roster, and I really hope that I can contribute to their success by bringing them one step closer to winning the championship. Dottin mentioned that he was looking forward to seeing all of the fans and putting on a show for everyone with his new teammates.
While this is going on, the fast bowler Sarah Coyte has relocated her base from the Strikers to the Melbourne Renegades. The 31-year-old bowler, who has represented Australia in 81 games across all formats, has 93 wickets to her name in the Women’s Big Bash League. She stated, “I’m looking forward to a new challenge,” and I couldn’t agree more. “I believe that this Renegades organisation is a fun one to be a part of, and when the opportunity presented itself to come across, I leaped at the chance to be a part of it. It would be great if I could carry over my form from the last couple of seasons into the Big Bash.”
“I want to keep things extremely simple. She continued, “I hope that I can contribute a bit of experience to the group with my bowling and through the lower order, and also encourage some of the younger players to have confidence in their abilities when they are out in the middle.”
In addition, the Strikers will have the ability to rely on top-order batter Laura Wolvaardt, who will be staying with the squad for the foreseeable future. She had a batting average of 29.30 and a strike rate of 121.33 for the 2021-22 season of the Women’s Big Bash League.
