THE YOUNG GUN

Tayla Vlaem­inck (Mel­bourne Rene­gades)

ABC Cricket - - WBBL -

All­rounder, right-hand bat/ right-arm medium-fast

Two knee re­con­struc­tions and a dis­lo­cated shoul­der over the last three years have pre­vented Tayla Vlaem­inck from mak­ing her WBBL de­but. De­spite lim­ited elite-level ex­pe­ri­ence, the Aus­tralian se­lec­tors have touted her as the fast-bowler they’ve been wait­ing for. Vlaem­inck was se­lected for the South­ern Stars T20 squad to play New Zealand this sum­mer based on her quick pace and abil­ity to bowl a solid bouncer. At just 19 years old, it’s likely Vlaem­inck hasn’t even reached peak speed, but her form in the Aus­tralia un­der-19s tour of South Africa in April saw her awarded player of the match in the fi­nal, where she took 6-27.
