South Africa players Laura Wolvaardt and Sune Luus have signed with the Brisbane Heat for the upcoming Big Bash League. Wolvaardt will play her second season; while this is Luus’ first time in the Big Bash League.
19-year old Wolvaardt became South Africa’s ODI player of the year in 2018 for her wonderful performance. She has played 48 International matches till date and is all set to play her second season with the Heat.
Leg-spinner Sune Luus has played 121 International matches with 1358 runs and 111 wickets in her name. As stated in cricket.com.au, WBBL Heat coach Pete McGiffin said, “Sune is a very exciting prospect. She’s a clever bat who surprises with her power and I really like the way she questions the opposition with the ball. She’s got a lot of experience and will complement the playing group we have really nice.”
While talking about Wolvaardt, he said, “I think Laura will benefit greatly from the experience she gained with us last season,’’ he said. “She probably didn’t get the runs she was hoping for but fitted in with the girls really well and did everything we asked of her.”
Currently, both of them are busy with their national duty for the World T20 which will start from November 9. Brisbane Heat will start their campaign against Adelaide Strikers on December 2 at Junction Oval, Melbourne.
