WBBL player profile: Danni Wyatt

It’s not hard to see why Danni Wyatt has a soft spot for the home of her WBBL team, the Melbourne Renegades. Hailing from Stoke-on-Trent in England the 27-year-old has previously spent some summers Down Under playing for Victoria’s elite women’s cricket team, before joining the WBBL last year in its inaugural season. From runs along the Yarra, savouring brunch with a coffee, beach walks and a spot of shopping Danni has definitely got the whole Melbourne thing down-pat. I caught up with Danni ahead of the 2016 Women’s Big Bash League. A quick single with Danni Wyatt Nickname: Waggy Best thing…

WBBL player profile: Nat Sciver

Nat Sciver made her return to the WBBL for the 2016 season, after a successful stint with the Melbourne Stars the previous summer. The all-rounder not only laid claim to the title of the Stars’ equal leading wicket-taker then, with 18 alongside Morna Nielsen, but also completed her campaign with 154 runs.

I caught up with Nat ahead of the 2016 Women’s Big Bash League. A quick single with Nat Sciver Nickname: Sciv Favourite…
