Poonam Yadav joins Brisbane Heat to complete WBBL overseas signings


The legspinner fills the spot vacated by Amelia Kerr who is unavailable this season

Legspinner Poonam Yadav has joined the large group of India players who will appear at the WBBL by joining Brisbane Heat as their third overseas signing.

Yadav, who helped bundle Australia out in the opening game of last year’s T20 World Cup, fills the hole left by Amelia Kerr’s unavailability for this year’s edition and takes the number of India stars to eight.

She has had a limited role to play so far in the multi-format international series playing in just two of the ODIs where she claimed one wicket but Heat are excited about the impact she could have. Joining forces with Jess Jonassen will form a strong spin-bowling pair.
