NEWS: Scorchers Sign Dottin As Cover For Bates NOT Katherine Brunt

After some confusion overnight, Perth Scorchers have confirmed that West Indies’ Deandra Dottin has been signed for the WBBL for 6 matches as cover for New Zealand captain Susie Bates – not as initially reported, England’s Katherine Brunt.

On her day, Dottin is one of the most devastating T20 players in the world – she was the first women ever to score a T20 international century – but her form has slumped a little of late, and she averaged just 18 in the recent series against Pakistan, with a best of 38*.
