Essex have announced the signing of New Zealand Women's international Lucy Doolan as their overseas player for the remainder of the season.
Off-spinner Doolan top scored with 48 during New Zealand's World Cup defeat to England in Sydney earlier this year, also playing in the ICC World Twenty20 Final against England at Lord's in June.
“We are delighted to have Lucy join us for the County Championships," coach Matt Hyam told www.essexcricket.org.uk. "She will be a great addition to our already talented squad bringing international experience to the team."
