Sydney Sixers get massive boost

Kerr, who is presently ranked second in the ICC women’s T20I bowling rankings, will wear magenta for the next three WBBL seasons, where she will rejoin Charlotte Edwards, the coach of the Mumbai Indians, at the Sixers.

I’m really excited for the opportunity to join the Sixers. It’s a team that has always competed at a high level and to be able to play alongside some world class players, I believe will help to grow my game,” Kerr said in a statement.

Jess (Kerr) and Suzie (Bates) have both spoken so highly of the club and the environment so I’m looking forward to being a part of it and can hopefully add some value both on and off the field,” she added.
