Adelaide Strikers sign Dottin for upcoming WBBL

The fearsome allrounder recently announced her retirement from international cricket

Deandra Dottin, who recently announced her retirement from international cricket, will play for Adelaide Strikers in the upcoming edition of the Women's Big Bash League. 

The fearsome allrounder made the call because of the "non-conducive" team environment but did add that she would continue to play in various T20 leagues around the globe.

Dottin has played for Perth Scorchers and Brisbane Heat in the past, having scored 424 runs along with taking 17 wickets in 29 encounters.

"Deandra is a match-winner who will bring big-game experience and elite performance to Adelaide this summer," Strikers head coach Luke Williams said.

"With more than 250 international appearances across T20 and ODI cricket, including multiple World Cups, as well as caps in the Hundred and WBBL, Deandra will be a fantastic addition to our squad."

Dottin said: "I am so excited to get to Adelaide and play in the WBBL again. The Strikers are a brilliant team and I hope I can help them take that extra step and bring home the title. I can't wait to meet all the fans and put on a show for everyone with my new teammates."

Meanwhile, seamer Sarah Coyte has moved from Strikers to Melbourne Renegades. The 31-year-old, who has featured in all three formats for Australia, has claimed 93 wickets in the WBBL.

"I'm looking forward to a new challenge. I think this Renegades group is an exciting one to be part of and when the opportunity presented to come across, I jumped at it. Hopefully, I can continue my form in the Big Bash from the last couple of seasons," she said.

"I like to keep things very simple. Hopefully, I can add a bit of experience to the group with my bowling and through the lower order and also help some of the younger players to trust their skills out in the middle."
