Imports head latest WBBL|02 rankings

19 December 2016

It's the allrounders from across the ditch who lead the way in the first update of the EXTRA Official WBBL Player Rankings

International star Amy Satterthwaite's outstanding start for the Hobart Hurricanes has seen the New Zealander leap to the top of the allrounder table in the EXTRA® Official Women's Big Bash League Rankings.

Satterthwaite, who climbed 16 places to take the No.1 position, has been a revelation for the Hurricanes with both bat and ball in their four Rebel WBBL matches to date.

She's scored runs 122 at 61, including crucial innings of 52no and 45no in Hobart's wins over the Melbourne Renegades last weekend.

With the ball, she's picked up four wickets including 2-22 against the Renegades, while she's also been responsible for several pieces of brilliant fielding.

Meanwhile, Adelaide Strikers international Sophie Devine has leapt up the batting charts, moving into second position behind Melbourne Stars skipper Meg Lanning.

Devine tops the runs scorers for WBBL|02 to date with 127 at 63.50, having notched 43, 41no and 43 in the Strikers' three games.

The New Zealander is just 5.2 rankings points behind Lanning, whose 122 runs at 40.66, including 66no and 33, have kept her in the top position.

The other big movers in the batting ranks are the Brisbane Heat's Beth Mooney, who has jumped six spots into fourth position, and the Hurricanes' Veronica Pyke (up 29 spots to No.7).

After knocks of 0, 4 and 6 in the opening three games, Mooney blazed an unbeaten 67 off just 46 balls at the WACA Ground on Sunday.

Pyke has yet to be dismissed in WBBL|02, posting unbeaten scores of 27, 27 and 3.

India T20 captain Harmanpreet Kaur has debuted at No.8 after her gallant 47no in a losing cause against the Stars and her 30no in the Thunder's win over the same opponents three days later.

Meanwhile, Sydney Sixers import Marizanne Kapp has strengthened her spot at the top of the bowling rankings after a strong start to the season, taking five wickets at 14.40 in the opening four matches, keeping a tidy economy rate of 4.54.

She struck early blows in both matches against the Stars at the weekend, including the big wicket of Lanning for nine on Sunday.

Last-minute recruit Danielle Hazell has debuted in second spot in the bowling rankings, after her outstanding weekend for the Melbourne Stars at Casey Fields.

The English spinner – brought in as a late injury replacement for Australian leg-spinner Kristen Beams – took 3-17 on Saturday before claiming 2-15 in a player-of-the-match performance on Sunday.

Hobart Hurricanes allrounder Hayley Matthews entered the bowling rankings for the first time at No.5.

The teenage West Indian bowled just 1.5 overs in WBBL|01, but her off-spin has been a revelation for the Hurricanes so far this tournament, never more so than in her match-changing 4-23 against the Renegades that led to a thrilling Super Over in Bendigo on Sunday.
