Danni Wyatt named in Women's Big Bash team of tournament

Sussex’s Danni Wyatt has been named in the official Women’s Big Bash League team of the tournament.

The team has been named at the end of the regular season, with just the finals weekend left to play this Saturday and Sunday.

The tournament's official website explains the selection process: "Aiming for a realistic mix of batters and bowlers, the seven-person selection panel nailed down the best XI of WBBL|05 on Monday following intense debate through the business end of the season.

"Tough calls had to be made, while players were rewarded for various factors including wickets in the Power Play, economy rates, strike rates and contributions towards victories."

Danni’s electric performances with the bat helped her Melbourne Renegades side into the last four. The opener was the team’s second highest run-scorer, smashing 468 runs from her 14 innings at a strike rate of 132.

The England international scored four half-centuries and set a personal Big Bash high score on two occasions: smashing 74 not out off 51 balls against Perth Scorchers on 1st November and then 87 from just 55 balls in a player of the match-winning performance against Brisbane Heat on 27th November.

She also bowled 14 overs of tidy off-spin, conceding less than seven runs an over and picking up four wickets.  

Danni will miss the semi-finals and final at Allan Border Field in Brisbane this weekend as she has joined up with the England squad for their series against Pakistan in Malaysia.
