South African all-rounders Nadine de Klerk and Anneke Bosch have been recruited by the Brisbane Heat for this season’s Women’s Big Bash League.

This is Bosch’s first stint in the WBBL. De Klerk has played for the Heat previously.

“We were really impressed with Nadine and how she adapted and improved across the tournament, which was played in some pretty challenging conditions due to the strict bio-security regime we all had to follow,” said Brisbane Heat head coach Ashley Noffke.

She’s ultra-competitive and give us another player who likes to get in and get the job done. She bowled well last season and did some unselfish work with the bat when it was needed.

“Anneke impressed us with her composure as well as her ability. In all our dealings with her, and the scouting we did before signing her, her strengths are that she is a talented individual who also works hard to enhance the other players around her.

“With Delissa Kimmince retiring, it will be great to have another experienced player in the group who can contribute on and off the field for the club.”

The 2021 WBBL is scheduled to start in Sydney, Australia, on 14 October.
