Bio

Right-arm medium pacer Lea Tahuhu is making the trip across the Tasman to play with the ACT Meteors for the first time in 2015-16.

Tahuhu is fast earning a reputation as one of New Zealand's most dangerous bowlers.

The tall right-armer from Christchurch made her debut for the Canterbury Magicians when she was just 18 and was promoted, after just two years of domestic cricket, to the White Ferns.

Her best bowling performance for the Black Caps came against Sri Lanka in 2013, when she took 4-27, while Tahuhu can be an equally fearless tailend bat.

Tahuhu started playing when she was eight years old and has also represented New Zealand at indoor cricket since 2007.
