Perth Scorchers have bolstered their fast bowling stocks ahead of Weber WBBL|13, signing towering fast bowler Stella Campbell for the next two seasons.

Campbell crosses over to Perth after 45 matches with Sydney Sixers, where she took 21 wickets at 30.81 including a best of 2-12.

The 21-year-old joins a fast bowling group featuring experience pair Taneale Peschel and Piepa Cleary, and captain Sophie Devine.

Standing at 184cm, Campbell generates significant bounce and bowls with noteworthy pace, having been clocked in excess of 120km/h.

The young quick has also represented Australia, making her debut as a 19-year-old in an ODI against India in September 2021 in Mackay.

She impressed on Test debut a week later, removing dangerous Indian duo Deepti Sharma and Tanya Bhatia during a day-night contest on the Gold Coast.

Reflecting on signing for the Scorchers, Campbell said:

“I am really excited to be joining the Scorchers. It’s a new opportunity for me and pushes me out of my comfort zone, but something I’m really looking forward to.

“Perth has plenty of international talent on their list, who I am excited to learn from, and I know that being around them will benefit my game massively.

“I am fortunate to have a couple of friends in Perth. Maddy Darke has been an important part of my journey, so I am keen to play alongside her and the rest of the team.

“I think I have a unique skillset, and hopefully my pace and bounce is well suited to the WACA. I am really excited to play in front of all the Scorchers’ fans.”
