“A few years ago I met Isaac and he told me about how he loves cricket, plays cricket, watches cricket, he’s all about cricket.
“So he ended up asking me out to a game of BBL.

“Last year was my first year and I was the top woman player in NSW.”
The secret to Deniz’s success is simple: “I’m much more of a risk taker than Isaac.
“He wouldn’t experiment on his team but I did and got lucky.”
“At the beginning when you are not scared of taking risks and you don’t take it too seriously, that’s when you do well.”

Warne has been tested for COVID 30 times this year.
