Sarah Glenn has signed with the Brisbane Heat as an International Replacement Player to cover for New Zealand allrounder Amelia Kerr, who will miss the early matches for the Heat.

Glenn is the ICC’s fifth-ranked women’s T20 International bowler and claimed 11 wickets for the London Spirit in the recent women’s Hundred series in the UK.

Heat head coach Ashley Noffke said, “Sarah was very impressive during the Ashes despite missing some games with an illness, and then England’s other international games in the season, as well as in The Hundred, so we’re very pleased she is available for us while Melie is having a short break.”

Glenn will join experienced South African recruit Mignon du Preez and recent English T20 debutant Bess Heath as the Heat’s international players for the opening games.
