Tahuhu named in Sunday's squad

14 November 2020

New Zealand international Lea Tahuhu is a welcome addition to the Melbourne Renegades’ 15-player squad for Sunday’s WBBL|06 match against the Melbourne Stars.

Tahuhu has not been available for selection during the early stages of the tournament due to injury, but has now been deemed fit to be named in the squad.

The 30-year-old has been a mainstay of the Renegades’ WBBL team since WBBL|02, with 49 wickets from 56 matches to her name courtesy of her pace and accuracy while opening the bowling.

Tahuhu replaces fellow New Zealander Rosemary Mair in the 15-player squad.

As they did against the Scorchers on Saturday, the Renegades will be wearing a special Indigenous playing shirt against the Stars to mark NAIDOC Week as a part of the WBBL First Nations Festival of Cricket.

The weekend’s matches will also include pre-match barefoot circles, as well as the Walkabout Wickets artwork on match balls and bat flip.

The Renegades’ shirt was designed by teenager Ky-ya Nicholson-Ward, a member of the Wurundjeri mob.
