London Spirit Sign West Indian Star Deandra Dottin


London Spirit today confirmed the signing of West Indian superstar Deandra Dottin for The Hundred.

Dottin, 28, is one of the most destructive players in the world game and she joins England captain Heather Knight at London Spirit, alongside fellow England players Tammy Beaumont and Freya Davies.

“I’m delighted to have signed for London Spirit,” said Dottin. “Every cricketer dreams of playing at a ground like Lord’s and the double-header fixture was definitely part of the reason I wanted to sign for Spirit.

“I know Heather well from playing against her in England v West Indies games and she’s a great competitor, so I look forward to teaming up with her, and I know Tammy and Freya are really strong players as well.

“Hopefully together we can help London Spirit be successful on the field.”

Barbados-born Dottin was one of eight signings confirmed today, with each team announcing another marquee player.

The Cloudfm County Ground is set to host the women’s London Spirit side during The Hundred.
