The recent Australian Women’s T20 Series at Kerrydale, showcased one of the Dolphins star players—all-rounder Delissa Kimmince.
Delissa made her international debut as an 18-year-old opening bowler, before three year break from the game. On her return to the Queensland Fire in 2012-13, she quickly showed the form required to play international cricket again, but this time with the added string to her bow of a free-flowing opening batter.
The switch from leather to willow soon bore fruit, with Delissa winning player of the final honours in the Fire’s successful 2013-14 domestic Women’s T20 victory and earning herself a place in the victorious Australian squad to Bangladesh for the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 tournament.
In the second of the Kerrydale T20’s against Pakistan, Delissa managed to show her complete talents with 43 runs, 1-15 with the new ball and a great diving catch which saw her named Player of the Match in Australia’s big win.
Already a century maker this season in the women’s 1st Grade competition, Delissa leads the charge for the Dolphin’s women as they hope to go one better than last year’s runners-up result in the Kath Raymont Shield.
