It's getting closer to the start of the WBBL season, with only four sleeps until the Renegades take on the Sydney Thunder on December 9.

With the Renegades list now finalised, we continue our look at the team who will take the field for WBBL|03.

 

Claire Koski - Campbelltown-Camden

Right Hand Bat

Right Arm Medium Fast

A talented all-rounder, Koski joins the Renegades after playing two seasons with the Sydney Thunder, including in their championship winning WBBL|01 campaign.

Koski is a strong hitter, able to send the ball flying into the stands with ease. Able to bat, bowl and even keep the wickets, Koski will add flexibility and ferocity to the Renegades line-up in their upcoming pursuit for the championship.

Lea Tahuhu – New Zealand International

Right Hand Bat

Right Arm Fast

The New Zealand International will continue with the Renegades after a successful first year with the team last year. Tahuhu’s aggressive bowling saw her take nine wickets with an average of 31.7, and reaching best figures of 2-25.

Keeping busy away from the WBBL, Tahuhu has spent time playing at both a local level with Canterbury and internationally with New Zealand.

 

Amy Satterthwaite – New Zealand International

Captain

Left Hand Bat

Right Arm Fast

Joining the Renegades from the Hobart Hurricanes, Satterthwaite will hold big responsibilities this year as the new captain of the team.

The New Zealand international joins the team after a massive 2015/16, where she topped the World T20 batting averages and broke records with her three centuries for New Zealand against Pakistan.

Now on a multi-year deal with the Renegades, the powerful all-rounder is set to be one of the most exciting players on the list for WBBL|03.

 

Kris Britt – ACT

Right Hand Bat

Right Arm Leg Spin

With more than 100 domestic games under her belt, Britt will this year be using her great knowledge of the game as an assistant coach for the WBBL squad.

Britt’s ability to communicate with her fellow teammates, educate them and help them grow means she is a highly respected figure at the Renegades.

While she may be beginning a transition to a coaching role, the 34-year old still has plenty to offer the team on the field with either the bat or ball in hand. The native Canberran scored 290 runs for the Renegades last year with a strike rate of 93.55.

 

Molly Strano – Australian International

Right Hand Bat

Right Arm Off Spin

Strano has been busy since a solid WBBL|02 campaign. The vice-captain of the Vic Spirit, Strano’s consistent performance was rewarded with a call up to the Women’s Ashes T20 squad.

The 25-year-old is an absolute cricket fanatic and a popular member of the Renegades outfit and highly regarded for her undeniable talent. Strano will support new captain, Amy Satterthwaite, as the vice-captain for WBBL|03.
