English wicketkeeper-batter Lauren Winfield-Hill has put pen to paper for the Melbourne Stars for WBBL|08.

Winfield-Hill has played 41 games in the WBBL and will bring a wealth of experience to the squad, having been capped 40 times at T20 International level for England.

In the most recent edition of the Women’s Hundred, Winfield-Hill scored the 4th most runs of the tournament, averaging 54.75 at a strike rate of over 136.

“I’m really looking forward to joining up with the Stars, meeting the girls, the staff and the fans,” Winfield-Hill said.

“I feel like I’m in a good space with my game at the moment and in some decent form so let’s hope that continues with the Stars.

“The group is a lovely blend of familiar faces for me with Jemi (Rodrigues), Caps (Alice Capsey) and JB (Jonathan Batty) but also some exciting youngsters who I’m looking forward to getting around.

“The WBBL is a great competition and I’m chuffed to be a part of it again.“

General Manager Blair Crouch was looking forward to the experience that Winfield-Hill brings. 

“Lauren is a quality person and quality cricketer and it’s great to secure her signature for WBBL|08.

“She has been in red hot form in the Hundred and we hope she can continue that run of form when she arrives in Australia.

“Along with our coach, Jonathan Batty, I’m thrilled with the international talent we’ve been able to assemble and we look forward to announcing our final couple of list spots this month.”


Current WBBL|08 squad: Meg Lanning, Alice Capsey (ENG), Lucy Cripps, Sophie Day, Nicole Faltum, Tess Flintoff, Kim Garth, Rhys McKenna, Sasha Moloney, Sophie Reid, Jemimah Rodrigues (IND), Annabel Sutherland, Lauren Winfield-Hill (ENG).
