West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor, who was player of the tournament at this year's women's World T20, will turn out again for the Sydney Thunder in the second WBBL season.
The allrounder, who's currently ranked No.3 in the T20 batting rankings and No.5 in the bowling rankings, is a key re-signing as the Thunder look to defending the title they won in the competition's inaugural season.
The 25-year old Jamaican made 59 from 57 balls in the final of the World T20 in April to help the Windies to an eight-wicket win over Australia.
"She had a really good time and fitted in really well with our group," said Thunder coach Jo Broadbent.
"She's probably one of the strongest hitters in the game I've ever seen, even comparing her to someone like Karen Rolton.
"She's very athletic in the field and good part-time off-spinner for us as well."
Taylor joins India's Harmanpreet Kaur as the Thunder's overseas players.
