Melbourne Stars Statement - Meg Lanning

28 August 2017

The Melbourne Stars has today been advised that Meg Lanning will not be renewing her contract with the Club.

After extensive negotiations with her management, the opener has notified the Club that she has elected to leave to pursue opportunities elsewhere.

Commenting on Lanning’s departure, Chief Executive Clint Cooper said:

“Whilst Meg’s decision to the leave the Club is very disappointing, we remain absolutely confident that the team we’ve formed is united and committed to the club’s long term future success.

“We thank Meg for her contribution to the Club over the past two seasons and wish her and her family well for the future,” Cooper said.

The coaching panel will now meet to appoint a new captain and a replacement player for Lanning, with this to be announced in due course.
