Bio

Ranked as the world’s third best female bowler on the ICC Twenty20 rankings, Morna Nielsen is another exciting international signing on the Stars’ list. She is a tidy and at times destructive spin bowler and has had success all over the world.

Nielsen debuted for New Zealand in 2010 and has barely missed an international match in that time, playing over 70 matches for the White Ferns. She has taken 36 Twenty20 International wickets with her left-arm orthodox at an exceptional strike rate and economy rate.

When not representing New Zealand, Nielsen also had a successful domestic season in 2014-15 with 11 wickets at an economy of below four runs an over. Nielsen has had her fair share of injuries including a history of finger and ankle problems, but comes to the Stars with a clean bill of health and an eagerness to make an impact.
