Harper named BBL|08 Young Gun

21 February 2019

Melbourne Renegades wicket-keeper/batsman Sam Harper has been named the BBL|08 Young Gun of the Season.

The award goes to the best performed player aged under 25.

Harper was the Renegades leading run scorer with 341 runs at a strike rate of 140.

The 22 year old’s top score (56 not out) came against Brisbane Heat at the Gabba and his 36 runs off 17 balls ignited the Renegades successful run chase in the semi-final against Sydney Sixers.

Harper played every match with the Renegades including the victory over the Melbourne Stars in the Final.

Georgia Wareham picked up the Young Gun award for WBBL|04, while Sophie Molineux won the award in WBBL|03.
