WBBL08: While the Adelaide Strikers have secured their power performers from the last few years, they have also made it a point to welcome some new players like Deandra Dottin, the former West Indies player. The Adelaides have played a smart move by securing the power hitter and all-rounder to their squad. The player has a massive experience of 126 T20I and 143 ODIs on her profile. With double WBBL appearances and a few The Hundred games, the player is a great pick, indeed.
Deandra said about her addition to the squad, stating, “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.”
The player has 6000+ runs with 13 years of experience. She has fetched a total of 134 wickets and is undoubtedly one of WIndies’ best. She has registered the fastest T20I century to her name, with her 38-ball performance against South Africa. Her previous performance for Perth Scorchers and Brisbane Heat have impressed the Strikers to add her to their squad this year. Her WBBL records hold 424 runs in all with 17 wickets.
Over 250 international appearances, 6000+ career runs, and the first ever woman to score a T20I hundred!
Deandra Dottin is a Striker for #WBBL08 🙌

WBBL08: Deandra Dottin’s experience will be helpful for her side
Luke Williams, Strikers’s head coach can’t wait to have Dottin playing their side as he said, “We are thrilled to welcome Deandra to the Strikers family. Deandra is a match-winner who will bring big-game experience and elite performance to Adelaide this summer. 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.”
Deandra Dottin has immense international experience. She has been a part of the 2022 World Cup and played with the Supernovas at India’s T20 challenge. She represented London Spirit at The Hundreds. It will be amazing to have Dottin play for the Strikers alongside some of the international bests as well.
