Spartan ambassador and Brisbane Heat quick Holly Ferling believes the inaugural season of the Women’s Big Bash League has been a major success and expects the competition will continue to grow in popularity.
In an exclusive Spartan interview, Holly reflected on her own whirlwind season in which she claimed 15 wickets for the tournament.
“It has definitely been a crazy few months. Our busiest period was a couple weeks before Christmas where we played 4 games in 3 days, had the red eye flight home from Perth, promotion week in Brisbane and then had our home rounds where again we played 4 games in 3 days.
“Despite all of this, I loved every second of it. I think everyone involved in the WBBL really showed Australia what women’s cricket is all about and that it is just as entertaining as the men’s game.”
As the first tournament of its kind in the world, the Women’s Big Bash has increased the profile of the women’s game not only in Australia but also on a global scale.
“To me, there’s no difference between men’s and women’s cricket – cricket is cricket and everyone is now starting to see that,” said Holly.
