WBBL|05 Player of the Season

WBBL|05 Player of the Season

Player of the Season candidates


Jess Duffin

Matches: 14

Batting: 544 runs at 68.00, strike rate of 138.78, high score of 76* 

Player of the Match:
vs Hobart Hurricanes @ CitiPower Centre, 9/11/2019
vs Melbourne Stars @ CitiPower Centre, 30/11/2019

In her first season as captain, Duffin took all before her. Batting in the middle order, she was regularly called upon to stabilise the innings or to safely guide her team to victory in a run chase. She blasted 544 runs from 13 innings, registering five 50s and a top score of 76 not out. So good was her form that she was again touted for international honours at the Twenty20 International World Cup, and she was deservingly crowned captain of the WBBL|05 Team of the Tournament.


Danni Wyatt

Matches: 14 

Batting: 468 runs at 39.00, strike rate of 131.83, high score of 87 

Bowling: 3 wickets at 33.00, economy rate of 7.61, best of 3-17

Player of the Match:
vs Adelaide Strikers @ Karen Rolton Oval, 20/10/2019
vs Brisbane Heat @ Allan Border Field, 27/11/2019

Returning for her fourth season as a Renegade, the English international enjoyed a superb season. Wyatt opened the batting in each of her 14 innings, notching four 50s and a career high WBBL score of 87 not out. Was unable to feature during the finals due to international commitments, but her regular season form still saw her named in the WBBL|05 Team of the Tournament. 


Molly Strano

Matches: 15

Bowling: 24 wickets at 16.91, strike rate of 13.7, best figures of 4-28 

Player of the Match:
vs Hobart Hurricanes @ CitiPower Centre, 10/11/2019
vs Sydney Thunder @ CitiPower Centre, 1/12/2019

The leading wicket taker in the competition’s history was again in fine form in WBBL|05, topping the charts for wickets taken (24). Whether it was opening the bowling or shouldering the load at the death, Strano was a reliable option for skipper Duffin all season long, and even captained the side herself in the last-ball win over the Sixers. She was an easy selection in the WBBL|05 Team of the Tournament. 


Lea Tahuhu

Matches: 15

Bowling: 9 wickets at 38.33, strike rate of 38.6, best figures of 2-20 

The fastest bowler in women’s cricket was a pillar of strength for the Renegades all season long. Although others took more wickets, so often it was due to the pressure built by Tahuhu’s miserly spells, as evidenced by her economy rate of just 5.94. She played a key role in the Renegades’ final-ball win over the Sixers when she started the match by castling Alyssa Healy. 


Maitlan Brown

Matches: 15

Bowling: 16 wickets at 22.12, strike rate of 18.1, best figures of 3-22 

Bowling at both ends of the innings, Brown took huge strides in WBBL|05, and ended the season named in the Australia A limited overs squads to take on India. She bowled brilliantly at the death, and regularly took wickets in the final over of an innings. Brown also made some important contributions with the bat in the lower order.
