Perth Scorchers have re-signed all-rounder Taneale Peschel on a new two-year contract extension ahead of this year's Women's Big Bash League in October.

Since making her debut in the third edition of the competition, the seam-bowling all-rounder has taken 39 wickets at an average of 28.6 and a best of 2/19 in 56 WBBL appearances. 

Taneale was called up to represent Australia in the World Women’s Indoor Cricket Championships in South Africa in 2011, she also played for WA at the Australian Women’s Championships in Canberra in 2008 and Brisbane in 2009.

Peschel elated about her contract extension with the Scorchers

“I’m stoked to be sticking around for another two years with the Scorchers. It’s a great organization to be a part of and I thoroughly enjoy being part of the orange family. Winning the WBBL for the first time was awesome but we’re hungry for sustained success and want to build on that achievement. Just retaining a lot of our players, we can start to build on that and build a dynasty,” said Taneale Peschel.

Last year, the 27-year-old had an interrupted pre-season after contracting COVID-19, but she is back feeling 100 percent now and will be looking for her breakthrough season in the upcoming WBBL 2022.

The three overseas spots in the Scorchers lineup have already been filled by captain Sophie Devine, New Zealand off-break bowler Maddy Green, last season’s man of the final- Marizanne Kapp. There are still five spots remaining for the local players.

Women’s Big Bash League 2022-23 is scheduled to kickstart from October 13 with the first match between Brisbane Heat and Sydney Sixers in Great Barrier Reef Arena. However, the Scorchers’ title defense gets underway against Sydney Thunder on October 16 at Blacktown, with their first home fixture against Melbourne Stars at the WACA four days later to their opening encounter.

Perth Scorchers WBBL Squad (So Far): Mathilda Carmichael, Piepa Cleary, Sophie Devine (Captain), Maddy Green, Marizanne Kapp, Alana King, Lilly Mills, Beth Mooney, Taneale Peschel, Chloe Piparo.
