A number of the players in the ACA BBL and WBBL Teams of Year react to the news of their selection.    

All players were given the opportunity to vote on who they felt had the biggest impact upon the competitions.

Sarah Aley - Sydney Sixers

"I know for me personally it was really difficult to select a team and had to leave out some players that had excellent performances throughout the tournament. So to be selected by my peers in this team is such an honour."

Molly Strano - Melbourne Renegades

"It's a nice feeling and an honour to be named in a team which is selected by my peers in the competition."

Elyse Villani - Perth Scorchers

"Being recognised by your peers is a huge honour and I feel very chuffed to be voted into the WBBL Team of the Year through them."

Alyssa Healy - Sydney Sixers

"Humbled to be named alongside some fantastic players. Even more special to be voted by your peers!"

"The challenge of the BBL continues to grow each year, along with the popularity - as always being recognised by those you compete against is the ultimate individual accolade."
