Summary

  • Meg Lanning is poised to sign with a new Women’s Big Bash League club as early as this week after departing the Melbourne Stars.
  • The Australian captain – who will miss this summer’s WBBL and Ashes because of a shoulder injury – is leaving the club she has captained in the first two seasons of the competition.
  • The gun batter, who was the leading run scorer in both WBBL seasons to date, is understood to be on the verge of an agreement with a non-Victorian club.
  • “We thank Meg for her contribution to the club over the past two seasons and wish her and her family well for the future.”
  • Despite more than 1000 runs from Lanning across the first two WBBL seasons, the Stars narrowly missed the finals in both summers, finishing fifth with a 7-7 record in both 2015-2016 and 2016-2017.
