Morna Nielsen

I’m not going to lie Morna, I had to google “vogel’s”. The Melbourne Stars cricketer has named the New Zealand gluten and dairy free buns from her homeland as one of her favourite foods in the latest WBBL player profile.

In between nailing breakfast and the occasioal snow skiing session Morna lays claim to being a dominate Twenty20 bowler having claimed 18 wickets from only 10 matches in the league’s inaugural season.
