After spending a sensational domestic season in England, all-rounders head to Australia
Experienced, unlimited English all-rounder Eve Jones Signed with Melbourne Renegades for the next BBL season.
Jones, 29, has never played international cricket, but has a great season in the country. She is the top run scorer in the Central Sparks T20 Charlotte Edwards Cup, scoring 276 runs at 55.20 in three half centuries in six innings. She was also the second best scorer in the 50-over Rachael Heyhoeflint Trophy, including the undefeated century, and fourth in the Hundred Birmingham Phoenix Lanternary.
“I’m very happy to be able to play for Renegade,” Jones said. “Playing at WBBL has been something I’ve always wanted to do and I’m really excited to have the opportunity.
“I’ve been watching Big Bash on TV for years. It looks like a great competition-it’s a big stage, with world-class players, and a lot of support behind it.”
Simon Helmot, the coach of the new Renegade WBBL, finds it convenient for Jones to have the ball as well.
“She increases the strength of our batting group, offers left arm bowling options and brings leadership experience,” Helmot said.
“Eve had an exceptional domestic summer in the UK, where she consistently performed and put together a huge amount of runs.”
