The pair had beforehand performed collectively at Melbourne Stars.
She will even be reunited with Hurricanes’ new skipper Elyse Villani, who can be a former Stars teammate.

“I can not wait to return to Australia,” du Preez stated. “I really like the Large Bash. It was a giant choice for me to make the transfer to the Hurricanes final season, however I can truthfully say I had such a good time each on and off the sphere. I bought to know a variety of the women very well, and as we bought to know one another higher as a workforce, our cricket actually improved too.

“We’ve a variety of the identical workforce we had final yr heading into WBBL 08, plus some fairly nice additions too, and figuring out first-hand what gamers of the standard of Junior (Villani) and Lizelle (Lee) can carry to a T20 workforce, I feel that places us in a fairly good place.”
