“I’m super excited to be joining the Hurricanes,” said Lee.

“Some people might know that I was originally meant to join the Hurricanes last year, but due to a combination of my family circumstances, international commitments and bubble fatigue, for the sake our my own and my family’s well being, I just couldn’t make it work.

“My good friend and South African team-mate, Mignon du Preez, said she really enjoyed her time in the Hurricanes environment last season, so I can’t wait to get stuck in and see what it’s like for myself this year.”

Lee previously represented the Melbourne Renegades and Melbourne Stars in the WBBL.
