Laura Wolvaardt withdraws from Women’s League exhibition match
Laura Wolvaardt withdraws from the tournament after being announced as the replacement player for injured Beth Mooney in the Women’s Premier League 2023. Mooney had suffered a knee injury in the tournament opener against Mumbai Indians on March 4. She injured her knee while taking a quick run during a chase of 208 runs against MI and did not feature in the match.
During the first exhibition match on Wednesday, the South African batter scored an unbeaten match-winning 53 for Super Women against the Amazons. Laura Wolvaardt went unsold in the WPL 2023 Auction while Mooney was picked up by GG at the WPL auction for Rs 2 crore.
On leaving the PSL 8 women’s exhibition matches, Wolvaardt thanked PCB for giving her an opportunity.
“I want to thank the PCB for this opportunity to play in the Women’s League exhibition matches. It has been an incredible short journey, but I have loved the experience. The team has been amazing and I have felt so welcomed.
“I wish both sides the best of luck with the rest of the series. I am sure both sides will strive hard and they will do well and learn a lot from the experience they will get from the matches.
“I cannot wait to return to Pakistan in September with South Africa’s national women’s team and learn more about this amazing country,” she concluded.
