She finished as the side’s leading run-scorer with 317 runs at an average of 28.82, including two half-centuries.

One highlight of Blackwell’s season was her match-winning partnership with 16-year-old Phoebe Litchfield to secure Thunder’s first win of WBBL|05.

Hales was a welcome addition to the Thunder Nation in BBL|09.

The big-hitting Englishman finished as the second leading run-scorer in the competition with 576 runs at an average of 38.40, including seven half-centuries and five consecutive innings of 47+ runs.

Hales’ consistent performances saw him recognised as the third best player of the tournament by match officials.
