ADELAIDE, Australia (CMC):
Barbados and West Indies all-rounder Deandra Dottin is set to make a dramatic return for Brisbane Heat in the Women’s Big Bash League this weekend, three weeks after undergoing face surgery.
The 25-year-old suffered multiple fractures to her cheekbones following an on-field collision with teammate Laura Harris, while attempting to field a delivery during a game against Melbourne Stars at Allan Border Field on December 27.
Dottin had titanium plates inserted during surgery to rectify the injury.
The live-wire Dottin has resumed training with the Heat and has been cleared to suit up for the weekend double-header against Adelaide Strikers – today and tomorrow – at the Gabba in Brisbane.
