In just her second full season with Sydney Thunder, Phoebe Litchfield has been named Weber WBBL|07’s ‘Young Gun’.
The Young Gun award is given to the best player under 21 years of age, as selected by Cricket Australia’s National Selection Panel.
The 18-year-old juggled her NSW Higher School Certificate commitments throughout the campaign while starring at number three in an injury-hit Thunder outfit, scoring 263 runs in the tournament.
Previous winners of the award are Darcie Brown, Hannah Darlington, Georgia Wareham, Sophie Molineux, Ashleigh Gardner and Lauren Cheatle.
“It means a lot to be recognised with this award. It’s a surprise, to be honest. I could think of a number of other young players who would be deserving of this award, which is really exciting for the future," said Litchfield.
“Batting at No. 3 was a challenge but also a great opportunity. I was very privileged that Trevor Griffin trusted me with that spot and I hope I made the most of it.”
