One of only a few International cricketers capable of opening both the batting and bowling, Marizanne Kapp is one of two overseas recruits for the Sydney Sixers in WBBL|01. 

Hailing from South Africa, Kappie has been ranked as high as number 2 in the world for her bowling in T20 Internationals and has also scored an ODI century, which has seen comparisons drawn to the allround talents of our own Ellyse Perry.

Kapp has connections with Australia having made her International debut on our shores as a 19-year-old during the ICC World Cup in 2009. 

A multi-talented sportswomen, she represented her province in netball, athletics, biathlon and lifesaving, and also became the first female cricketer – alongside Dane van Niekerk – to be included in the Eastern Province Cricket Academy where she trained alongside male cricketers.
