Kate Peterson has been one of the most consistent bowlers of the WBBL 2022, and has also succeeded in providing timely breakthroughs for the Sydney Sixers. She was the key performer against Sydney Thunder as she finished with figures of 3/27 from her four overs at an economy of 6.75. She would be expected to showcase yet another consistent performance.
