Australian quick Vlaeminck signs

03 June 2019

The Hobart Hurricanes' big summer of recruitment has continued with the addition of young Australian fast bowler, Tayla Vlaeminck, to its squad for rebel WBBL|05.

20-year-old Vlaeminck debuted in the WBBL for the Melbourne Renegades last summer, playing six matches, including claiming 4/29 on debut vs. the Sydney Thunder.

Born in Bendigo, Victoria the rising star has one ODI cap and one T20I cap to her name - the latter coming in the Caribbean vs. India during Australia's successful T20 World Cup campaign last November and will long be remembered for the spectacular catch she took at square leg to dismiss former Hurricanes player Veda Krishnamurthy.

Vlaeminck visited her new surrounds at Blundstone Arena last month and can't wait to return when the standalone WBBL season gets underway in October.

"I'd heard all about the great things happening with the Female Program down in Tasmania from a few players so when I heard of their interest I was really excited about the move south," said Vlaeminck.

Hurricanes Women's Head Coach, Salliann Briggs, is thrilled with the new addition to her side's bowling attack.

"We identified the need to add some more pace to complement our attack and Tayla definitely brings that," said Briggs.

"We're really pleased one of the rising stars of Australian cricket will continue her development as a Hurricanes player."

Vlaeminck joins Australian all-rounder Nicola Carey as the new additions to the Hobart Hurricanes squad announced to date.

The WBBL|05 fixture will be announced by Cricket Australia on Wednesday 12 June.
