WBBL star Deandra Dottin replaced by holidaying England international

Deandra Dottin

Brisbane Heat have replaced injured WBBL star Deandra Dottin with England wicketkeeper-batter Lauren Winfield, who is in Australia on holidays.

West Indian Dottin remains an outside chance to play again in the competition despite fracturing her cheekbone in an on-field collision.

The 26-year-old underwent surgery after clashing heads in the outfield with team-mate Laura Harris while trying to stop a boundary against Melbourne Stars last week.

Despite being replaced, Dottin is able to regain her place in the Heat side should she recover.

Yorkshire captain Winfield had been travelling Australia when she received the call to join the Heat.

She averages almost 24 runs in her 18 Twenty20 international matches for England with a strike rate of 112.
