England glove-butler Sarah Taylor looks set for a Return to Oz this winter, having been named in the South Australia… sorry… “Breezair” Scorpions squad for this (Australian) summer’s 50-over WNCL.
Taylor was named Player of the Season in 2014/15, as the Scorpions made the final for the first time since 2008; but the Scorps were well beaten on the day by the NSW Breakers – cruising to their 16th title in the 18 year history of the competition.
However, this years’ WNCL could be the most open in years, as the deck is reshuffled due to the impact of the Women’s Big Bash League, with many players moving cities as they sign new WBBL contracts.
The Scorpions themselves will be much-strengthened (and the Breakers consequently weakened) by the move of Southern Stars quickie Sarah Coyte (currently on Women’s Ashes duty in England) from NSW to SA.
Good for Sarah…hope she does well for them again.
Love the phrase “glove-butler”! Note to self – must use in conversation. Second note to self – “Jos Buttler the glove-butler” MUST be a new chant.
