New Zealand all-rounder Leigh Kasperek is confident the Yorkshire Diamonds have what it takes to make their first Kia Super League Finals Day having signed as a late overseas replacement for injured Chloe Tryon.

Kasperek, 27, will link up with her team-mates at their St Peter’s School training base in York today (Monday) having played county cricket for Yorkshire for the past two seasons.

South African all-rounder Tryon requires knee surgery, meaning Edinburgh-born Kasperek, an off-spinner who is intent on developing her batting, will supplement overseas duo Alyssa Healy (Australia) and Jemimah Rodrigues (India).
