Momentum Proteas’ Marizanne Kapp is the first international player and third overall to take 100 Women’s Big Bash League wickets. 

Kapp moved to Perth Scorchers this year after six seasons with Sydney Sixers. 

On Sunday, 7 November, Kapp left the Hobart Hurricanes top-order in tatters, taking 4-10 to guide Scorchers to an emphatic win.

Prior to this performance, the South African had taken four wickets across her first seven matches for her new team, maintaining an economy rate of 6.07. 

“I was happy to finally compete, I felt like the first games I was absolutely nowhere,” Kapp revealed to the WBBL media. 

Speaking on her arrival at the club, Kapp said: “To be honest, I was a bit nervous.

“I think I just put a bit too much pressure on myself. Hopefully now all that is gone, and I can keep on contributing,” she concluded. 

Earlier this year, Kapp was recognised by the International Cricket Council as she was named ICC world’s best Women’s ODI All-Rounder.
