South East Stars have signed Australian wicketkeeper-batter Georgia Redmayne for the latter stages of the Charlotte Edwards Cup and four Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Trophy games.

The 30-year-old will join the squad ahead of Stars’ standalone game at The Kia Oval against Sunrisers on 15 June and remain with the team until the final fixture before the start of The Hundred, which is a 50-over game against Sunrisers at Beckenham on 14 July.

Redmayne, who is also a qualified doctor, averages over 51 in List A cricket and has scored 2,658 runs in the format, including seven centuries and a career-best of 134 not out. In T20s, the left-hander has collected more than 2,700 runs, including 17 half-centuries and a top score of 98 not out. She also has 127 catches and 71 stumpings to her name, across formats.

The wicketkeeper-batter has played nearly 200 matches across formats, representing Hobart Hurricanes, Perth Scorchers, and Brisbane Heat in the WBBL as well as New South Wales, Tasmania, and Queensland in the Women’s National Cricket League.

Her first taste of English cricket was back in 2012 when she represented Worcestershire in the Women’s County Championship before returning to play in The Hundred for Welsh Fire in 2021, where she finished as her team’s second-highest run-getter for the season.

In 2024, the Australian will be representing London Spirit in The Hundred, having been retained by the outfit earlier this year.

This winter, Redmayne also played an important part in Brisbane Heat’s WBBL campaign, scoring 354 and collecting 14 dismissals behind the stumps, as her side narrowly lost the final to Adelaide Strikers.

Georgia Redmayne said: “I am very excited to have been asked to play for the Stars – I’ve been following their season closely and have been impressed by their dynamic style of play as one of the leading teams in the competition.

“I’m very grateful to be given another opportunity to play in English conditions and hope I can contribute positively to the team’s success on and off the field.”

Emma Calvert, Regional Director of Women’s Cricket, said: “Georgia is a vastly experienced professional, who has consistently delivered for the teams she has been a part of. She is a match-winner with the bat and adds depth to our wicketkeeping options.

“Georgia has an exemplary knowledge of the game, and her addition will be of great value to us on the field and in the dressing room. I look forward to seeing her in Stars’ colours.”
