Babette de Leede-Behind the Stumps 

She holds the world record for the most stumpings in a single innings of a cricket match. She also plays for the Netherlands women’s national cricket team and is in her third season of playing for the Western Province women’s team in Cape Town South Africa. My guest on She Speaks Sport today is Babette de Leede. 

On the show, we talk about her cricket lineage, from her grandparents meeting at a cricket match, to her uncle and cousin playing international cricket for the Netherlands. Babette talks us through her incredible participation in the Fairbreak Tournament when she formed an integral part of the Sapphires team, and made history with her quick gloves and fast stumping. She lets us in on how she feels about playing for Western Province, and how she balances completing her master’s degree while playing cricket and dreaming of bigger things for the years that lie ahead. How did she feel watching the auction for the inaugural Women’s Cape Premier League and the amount paid for her to join the team? And what is on her vision board for 2024? Get to know the overseas player who is making her mark in the Western Province cricket team, right here.
