Young gun Sophie Day was handed a contract by Melbourne Stars ahead of the sixth edition of the Women's Big Bash League in 2020. The left-arm spinner with a slightly unusual action impressed in her maiden WBBL stint, picking 11 wickets including the big fish Suzie Bates, Laura Kimmince and Lizelle Lee. Her flat and slow trajectory lulls batters into a false sense of benignness as they end up locating hands eagerly waiting for miscued hoicks.
