Reakes is one of the most experienced players in the Women’s Big Bash League and returned to the Sixers last season. Reakes spent WBBL|04 with the Melbourne Stars before a torn Achilles ruled her out the following season.
 
WBBL|07 will be her fifth season in magenta including the first three seasons of the competition where the Sixers claimed the WBBL|02 and WBBL|03 titles. She has now played 60 matches for the club.
 
“I’m pumped about re-signing,” Reakes said.
 
“I’m really looking forward to it … a few things didn’t go our way last year (and) it’s always exciting to start a new season.

“I’m hoping for really big things this year, we obviously really love winning and we’ve missed (that feeling) the last couple of seasons. I think everyone is hungry to try and get their hands on a lot more wins and hopefully reach a Final this year.”
 
The ACT Meteors captain is a cricketer who brings vast domestic experience to any side she plays in, and her leadership is the perfect complement to Sixers experienced players such as Ellyse Perry, Alyssa Healy and Ashleigh Gardner.
