If you don't know the name Nida Dar by now, we expect you'll find out shortly.

The Pakistan T20 and ODI legend, veteran of over 150 combined caps between the two variations, is the Sydney Thunder's newest acquisition and if her nickname is anything to go by, she's sure to put a few bums on seats.

"Itโ€™s wonderful," Dar told the Big Bash website.

"I have dreamt that I would one day play in this amazing league, and now I have the opportunity to play for Sydney Thunder.

"This is a great thing for me, it is a great achievement to play in the WBBL. I have been following the WBBL, it is great.โ€

Dar believes her signing is also a beckoning call to Pakistan fans, who'll know her well from her triumphs with the national side, to come out and watch the WBBL this season.

"It is the very first time a woman from Pakistan has come to play in the WBBL," she said.ย 

"I know people from Pakistan will be very proud.

"I know the people who have come from Pakistan to settle in Sydney will follow me, and thatโ€™s very exciting.โ€
