Cape Town - Proteas fast bowler Marizanne Kapp has been selected in the official Women's Big Bash League Team of the Tournament.

According to the official Big Bash League website, Australian journalist Laura Jolly, Head of Big Bash Leagues Alistair Dobson, Australia women's team head coach Matthew Mott, former Australian captain Belinda Clark, former Australia players Lisa Sthalekar and Mel Jones and commentator Alister Nicholson are the judges on the panel.

Kapp, playing for the Sydney Sixers, slotted in at No 8 on the prestigious line-up after grabbing 15 wickets in 14 matches with best figures of 3 for 16.
