Overseas aboard in ’24

even overseas players will bolster the Evoke Super Series squads this season

Seven overseas players will bolster the Evoke Super Series squads this season – with six new faces making the journey to Irish shores this year, whilst Robyn Searle returns for the Typhoons.

The new players, who hail from New Zealand, Australia and Zimbabwe, have made the journey to play club and domestic cricket in Ireland in 2024.

Here’s how they line up.  


Ocean Bartlett 

The legspinner made her first-class debut for the Central Hinds at the age of 17 and was given her first contract a year later. The 20-year-old captained a New Zealand Development team that toured India recently. A proud moment for Bartlett was being involved in the Aotearoa Māori Wāhine team that took part in the Pacific Cup in January this year, representing her family’s Māori culture. Bartlett is studying at the University of Canterbury where she is working towards a Bachelor of Law and Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Sociology and Human Services and minoring in Te Reo Māori.  

Anna Gaging 

Fresh off the plane from New Zealand, English-born Gaging plays for Nelson and Central District Hinds in their domestic competition. Twin sister Kate also plays for Central Hinds as wicketkeeper. Anna is an attacking new-ball bowler with best figures of 4/43 in the New Zealand Women’s Cricket One Day Competition and is studying law, political science and international relations alongside her cricket career.   

Robyn Searle 

Searle is returning for her third season in Ireland and her third playing for the Typhoons. She has two caps for South Africa and played five years of internationals for the U19 national team. She scored 199 runs in the Evoke Super 50 Cup last year at an average of just under 65 but was less successful in the T20 Trophy, scoring just 99 runs in six matches, averaging 19.8. A technically correct top-order batter, Searle contributes with runs and a fantastic attitude. She was made captain of The Titans professional domestic team in South Africa this year and was part of the first domestic televised women’s game in the country. Searle is Director of Youth Coaching in Clontarf this season and will finish her degree in Education back in South Africa this year.  


Claudia Green 

Opening bowler for the Central Hinds in New Zealand, Green has been involved in New Zealand A and New Zealand development teams in the last few years and has spent time in England with the senior squad as well. The inswing bowler from Nelson has also represented the South Island in the North v South rivalry for the past two years. Her best performance in domestic cricket came in January this year when she took 4/24 against Northern Districts, including a fantastic hat-trick against including the prize wicket of Chamari Athapaththu. A teacher by trade, Green enjoys being in a career that brings her balance, purpose and meaning outside of cricket.  

Elise Noble 

A dynamic top-order batter from Penrith Cricket Club in New South Wales, Noble debuted in 1st grade cricket at the age of 15. Having been selected to train in the New South Wales pathways programme at age 12, Noble has represented her state in the U18 National Championships three times. Also a state-level swimmer, she is studying to be a high school PE teacher. 


Modester Mupachikwa 

The diminutive Zimbabwean debuted on the international stage at the age of 14. She has been part of the national team set up for over seven years and has travelled around the world playing cricket including in England and most recently in Australia. A tidy keeper and a busy opening batter who played in the recent ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifier alongside Ireland, Mupachikwa has just finished a season playing for Burwood CC in Victoria where she was named in the club cricket team of the year.   

Clare Webber 

Hailing from Northern Districts CC in New South Wales, Webber grew up playing in the boys’ team and played with them until she was 16-years-old. She has represented New South Wales at U15 and U19 level. She is playing alongside Ireland captain in Leinster CC this season and is taking a year out from her studies in exercise and sports science.
