South African veteran Mignon du Preez is returning to the WBBL after re-signing with the Hobart Hurricanes.

She will also be reunited with new Hurricanes captain Alice Villani, who is also a former Stars teammate.

“I can’t wait to return to Australia,” said du Preez. “I love Big Bash. Going to Hurricane last season was a big decision for me, but I can honestly say I had a great time on and off the field. I got to know a lot of girls really Well, and as we get to know each other better as a team, our cricket has really improved as well.

“We have the same team going into WBBL 08 last year, plus some really cool additions, and know firsthand what a quality player like Junior (Vilani) and Lizelle (Lee) can bring to T20s The team, I think it puts us in a pretty good position.”
