Ghosh, who is celebrating his 18th birthday this week, has a lot of experience playing in Australia.
She made her international debut in the triangular women’s T20 series last year ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup, where they finished second before representing India in the premier design competition.
With a T20 strike rate of over 100, Ghosh made a one-day international debut on Australian soil last month as part of India’s multi-faceted Australian tour.
“I am very excited to be playing in the WBBL this year,” Ghosh said in a statement posted on the Hobart Hurricanes website.
“I’m so grateful for Hurricanes for this opportunity. I’m looking forward to coming to Tasmania and meeting my new team.”
Ghosh has been added as an alternative to the recently withdrawn Liselle League, citing the need to retire indefinitely from cricket after numerous overseas matches, bubbles and isolated needs.
