Tahuhu and Dattani join Surrey Stars

New Zealand right-arm seamer, Lea Tahuhu, has signed to play for Surrey Stars in the inaugural edition of the Kia Super League (KSL), which gets underway this weekend. 

Tahuhu steps into Natalie Sciver’s Stars dressing room in place of Meg Lanning, after the Australian captain was ruled out of the competition due to a shoulder injury.

Renowned as one of the fastest bowlers in the world, Tahuhu will complete a formidable seam bowling line-up for the Stars, joining South Africa’s Marizanne Kapp and Australian Rene Farrell.

Tahuhu will arrive in the UK in time for Surrey Stars’ first fixture of the tournament on Sunday 31 July against Southern Vipers at the Ageas Bowl. 

Overseas talent and new signings 

She will be one of 18 overseas internationals to feature during the round-robin T20 competition, joining the likes of West Indian ICC Women’s World T20 winners, Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews (both Lancashire Thunder) and Stafanie Taylor (Western Storm), Australia’s Ellyse Perry (Loughborough Lightning) and Wisden Cricketer of the Year and New Zealand captain, Suzie Bates (Southern Vipers).    

Surrey Stars have completed another new signing this week, after left-handed batting all-rounder Naomi Dattani joined the squad as a replacement for Kirstie White, after the wicketkeeper suffered an ankle injury during a warm-up match against Loughborough Lightning last week. England’s Tammy Beaumont will now take on wicketkeeping duties behind the stumps for the Stars.

Surrey Stars General Manager, Ebony Rainford-Brent, said: “Signing a player of the calibre of Lea Tahuhu is a big boost to our squad ahead of our opening match this weekend. Alongside the likes of Natalie Sciver, Laura Marsh, Alex Hartley, Rene Farrell and Marizanne Kapp, we now have a very strong bowling attack and I look forward to seeing them in action.

“It is a shame to lose Kirstie White from the squad but she is working hard to regain her fitness and make herself available should we encounter any more injury issues in the latter stages of the competition. Naomi is a great replacement however, and we all look forward to the contributions she can make for the Stars throughout the tournament.”
