Sydney Thunder captain Rachel Haynes has withdrawn from the entire WBBL due to a combination of injury, border closures and parental leave, except for changes to quarantine arrangements for those leaving New South Wales.
Rachel Haynes suffered a hamstring injury during the third ODI between Australia and India at Mackay last month. And he was ruled out of the rest of the series, including the day-night Test and three T20 Internationals.

She returned to New South Wales to live with her partner, Leah Poulton. Because she gave birth to her son Hugo. Rachel Haynes had always planned to miss the early part of WBBL to be with her family. However, residents of New South Wales still not allowed to leave the state without 14 days quarantined for 14 days before the tournament begins in Tasmania this week.
With the entire WBBL played in Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland, Haynes has decided to miss the tournament. Unless there is a change in stability or boundary conditions.
Rachel Haynes said: “I understand the need to reschedule the schedule due to the ongoing border closures.” “However, this means that Sydney Thunder will be on the road for the entire duration of the WBBL. With the mandatory 14-day quarantine – I am left with no option but to make myself unavailable.
“However, as I told the squad, I will be back if the current boundary restrictions of the tournament structure change.”
Rachel Haynes said she will continue to rehab her hamstrings. With the aim of being able to play later in the tournament. In the unlikely event that state borders open up.
Rachel Haynes said, “As much as I want to be with the team. It would not be fair for us as a family to leave Leah and Hugo at this stage for so long.” “I have spoken to all the players and staff and they have been very supportive of my decision.
“It just shows that in matters of the heart, the heart wins. Although I’m doing my hamstring rehabilitation with the intention that I can put myself forward to play, it will be much later in the season and state borders.” But there will be an accidental opening. UP.”
