Sian is a new addition to the White Ferns this season and she is looking forward to getting out and showing what she can do with the bat and ball.
She started out playing Kiwi cricket at a young age and made her debut for the White Ferns against Australia in June 2009. This 25 year old Wellingtonian is already making a name for herself on the international stage, especially because of her outstanding performances at the Twenty20 World Cup.
In the first game of the tournament Sian took three for 12 against Australia securing the player of the match award. Sian was involved in the semi final against India in which she bowled two for 18 and the final against England at Lord’s where she took 1 for 17.
When Sian isn’t being the White Fern’s newest bowling sensation she holds down a job as a postie. She delivers mail to Kandallah residents in wellington and says she does her work in the morning which allows her to focus on training in the afternoons.
Although she is a new addition to the White Ferns she is set to be a key player in this season’s bowling line up, so ensure you keep an eye out for this young, dedicated bowler.
- Sian is an exciting left arm medium pace bowler who can swing the ball both ways.
- She has the ability to get very good players out with her swinging deliveries and bowls equally well with the new and older ball.
