Leg-spinner Kristen Beams made a late start to WBBL|02 due to a finger injury, but returned to have an excellent season.
Taking 11 wickets in only seven matches, Beams’ accurate and incisive bowling proved invaluable.
Her best performance came against the Adelaide Strikers in Perth, where Beams took 3-11 from just three overs where the Stars took the win.
A late comer to international cricket, the 31-year-old’s leg-breaks have been prolific wicket-takers.
Last season, Beams starred in the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars’ tour of Sri Lanka, taking 13 wickets in four one-day international matches, including a best of 4-15.
