Sydney Sixers fast bowler Stella Campbell has said, she wants to work on increasing her pace and that it is crucial to execute her plans on the field. The teenage sensation is currently the second leading wicket-taker in the sixth edition of the ongoing Women's Big Bash League (WBBL).

"I always want to get quicker," Campbell told reporters on Tuesday (November 2). "It’s something that hasn’t been seen too much in the female game as of late. It’s definitely something I want to be working to improve every season," she said.

Campbell believes that her height and the bounce she generates are her assets as a fast bowler. "So, that’s definitely a tactic I can use on batters and mix that in with a few other different deliveries, and hopefully, get some wickets," she added.


The 18-year-old is trying to make the most out of her second season with the Sixers. She said that she is fortunate to be in this team and playing alongside experienced players like Ellyse Perry and Marizanne Kapp.

"It’s definitely helped my experience learning of them wherever I can in different situations to try and improve my skills by following them," she said.

Campbell played a vital role in the Sixers victory against Melbourne Renegades by picking three crucial wickets. She said that she took the opportunity to improve her skills and execute different variations this season.


Applauding the role of head coach Ben Sawyer in her development, Campbell said, "Ben Sawyer has been a really great help. So, I’ve been really fortunate to have him by my side in Breakers and now in here."

Campbell has completed her HSC exams on Monday, and she has been named in the 14-member squad for the match against Brisbane Heat on Wednesday (November 4). The Sixers have two matches so far and is currently placed second in the points table.
