WBBL|06 Player of the Season

WBBL|06 Player of the Season


Player of the Season candidates

Lizelle Lee

Matches: 13

Batting: 261 runs at 21.75, strike rate of 121.96, high score of 79

Player of the Match:
vs Sydney Sixers @ North Sydney Oval, 21/11/2020

In her first season in red after a distinguished career with the Stars, Lee was one of five Renegades to play all 13 matches in WBBL|06. Making a steady start, Lee exploded in the penultimate match, thumping 79 from 45 balls in a Player of the Match winning performance against the Sixers. Her strike rate of 121.96 was second only to Georgia Wareham, and she hit more sixes (10) than any other Renegade.

Carly Leeson

Matches: 13

Batting: 78 runs at 9.75, strike rate of 114.70, high score of 31

Bowling: 11 wickets at 23.45, economy rate of 7.00, best of 3-14

Player of the Match:
vs Adelaide Strikers @ Sydney Showground Stadium, 18/11/2020

A breakout season for the 22-year-old, who pressed her claims as a bowling all-rounder with some fine performances in key situations. She served notice as a batter on the rise when she thumped 31 from 17 balls to nearly pinch victory over the Strikers, and her 3-14 in the return match against the same opponents earned her Player of the Match status. Leeson, who took an equal-season high 11 wickets, even spent time as an opener, and a move up the order in the seasons to come is not beyond her.

Sophie Molineux

Matches: 12

Batting: 221 runs at 20.09, strike rate of 93.24, high score of 52

Bowling: 11 wickets at 24.09, strike rate of 20.6, best figures of 3-20

Still only 22 but already one of the Renegades’ most senior players, Molineux was again in the thick of the action with both bat and ball. Opening the batting and often the bowling, she ranked third for runs scored and equal-first for wickets taken amongst her teammates. A top score of 52 helped steer the Renegades to victory over the Strikers, while her 3-20 in the earlier fixture against the same opponents helped keep her team in with a chance. 

Courtney Webb

Matches: 13

Batting: 246 runs at 30.75, strike rate of 112.32, high score of 54*

Bowling: 1 wicket at 25.00, strike rate of 18.0, best figures of 1-25

The youngster built on her match-winning efforts against the Sixers in WBBL|05 to become a pivotal member of the Renegades’ middle order in WBBL|06. Webb made 246 runs at a healthy average and strike rate, often coming to the crease needing to stabilise the innings after the fall of early wickets. She was named Player of the Match for her 54 not out in the tied match against the Stars that was later resolved in a Super Oval. A player for all conditions and match situations, Webb’s fielding was also noteworthy, and her diving catch against the Sixers was safely the catch of the season.
