The Adelaide Strikers are pleased to announce the re-signing of Sarah Coyte for rebel WBBL|06

Coyte was an integral part of the team’s run-in to the Final last season, with 19 wickets from 16 matches played.

The former Australia allrounder also took career-best Big Bash figures of 3/9 in WBBL|05, with her medium-fast swing bowling and clever variations a tough ask for opposing batters.

The 29-year-old is also a handy lower-order batter, contributing valuable runs on several occasions for the Strikers.

Her quickfire 24 off 13 lifted her team to victory in a low-scoring match against the Hobart Hurricanes last summer, earning her Player of the Match accolades.

A star for the Strikers in the side’s first two WBBL seasons, Coyte retired from cricket in early 2017 before making a courageous comeback to the sport with the Sydney Sixers late in WBBL|03.

Coyte was named Player of the Final in the Sixers’ Championship victory that summer then reunited with the Strikers ahead of WBBL|04.

Thrilled with her re-signing, Coyte said:

“I’m stoked to have re-signed with the Strikers and playing for Adelaide and having my Adelaide summers has always felt like home.

“I’m hoping we can go one better than last year and hold up that trophy.

“I felt like last year I was in a really good head space and played some good cricket, and this year I’m in an even better space so I’m really pumped for a better Big Bash than the last!”
