Sussex women have announced the signing of England international Danni Wyatt from Nottinghamshire.
The 24-year-old all-rounder will bolster Sussex’s spin department following the retirement of Holly Colvin, who took up a role at the International Cricket Council.
Wyatt, who has over 100 limited-overs caps for England, will join international team-mates Sarah Taylor and Georgia Elwiss at the 1st Central County Ground, Hove.
Wyatt, currently preparing for England’s ICC Women’s World Twenty20 semi-final against Australia tomorrow, said: “I’m delighted to have signed for Sussex. I can’t wait to get on the pitch with this group of talented girls.
“Playing with and against the best players in the country can only benefit me and it’s going to be great fun playing alongside the likes of Sarah Taylor, Georgia Elwiss, Georgia Adams etc.
“Hopefully I can add to the spin and batting department and help push for the Championship with this brilliant side we’ve got.”
Sussex director of women’s cricket Charlotte Burton added: “It is fantastic news that Danni will be joining Sussex women. Danni is a talented all-rounder who will strengthen all departments for us, and will be a great addition with the ball, having lost Holly Colvin to retirement.
“Danni will fit in perfectly with the squad, especially as she played Junior County Age Group cricket with Georgia Elwiss at Staffordshire, and she knows many of the players already through the county set-up and at England level.”
