Sydney Thunder has re-signed West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor for a further two-years in the Rebel Women’s Big Bash League.
The 26-year-old was part of the club’s championship winning season in WBBL|01 and has taken 12-wickets and scored 661-runs her two seasons at the club.
“I’m really excited to be back at the Thunder. It is a really great group to a part of and I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again,” said Taylor.
“I’m hoping this year I can score my first Twenty20 century, that’s my goal for this season.”
Taylor currently ranks as the number one T20I batter and number two T20I all-rounder in the world and Sydney Thunder General Manager Lee Germon is thrilled to have her back in green for another two years.
“Stafanie is hugely respected on the international cricket scene for her ability and leadership,” said Sydney Thunder General Manager Lee Germon.
“As captain of the West Indies side she will complement our strong leadership group. She will bring experience and power as a batter and skill and guile as a bowler in our line up.
“Our Thunder Nation fans are going to enjoy immensely watching her in the WBBL.”
