"I’m excited to be back at the Renegades. It’s going to be great to get back out on the road for WBBL and to reunite with a lot of mates who I’ve played with before. My power hitting is something I consider a strength, and hopefully that’s something I can bring to the team,"

Coached by Simon Helmot, the Renegades begin their WBBL 2022 campaign against Adelaide Strikers on October 16.

Captained by Sophie Molineux, the club has players like Shabnim Ismail, Harmanpreet Kaur, Hayley Matthews, and Tayla Vlaeminck in their ranks.
