The latest edition of the Big Bash has seen a number of former Leinster players involved.

The relaxation of the calibre of overseas players allowed in Leinster a few seasons back has undoubtedly seen an increase of the quality of player plying their trade in Dublin.

However, part of the joy in finding unearthed gems has gone, with many clubs signing youngsters who subsequently developed into genuine stars.

Balbriggan's Clint Hinchcliffe has enjoyed a successful campaign with Melbourne Stars in the current season.

His left-arm chinamen have seen him claim three-wicket hauls against Sydney Sixers and Adelaide Strikers.

Australian international Daniel Worrall has also featured prominently - his one appearance in Leinster cricket coming in 2015 for Railway Union against Clontarf.

Another Aussie international who has been one of the main performers over the years has been former Trinity and YMCA player Ben Dunk, while Jono Cook of Pembroke and Mac Wright of Clontarf have also played.

They will all have to bow though to the most successful Leinster player of all in the Big Bash - that honour goes to Kim Garth who played a starring role in her time with Sydney, including winners medals.

The Pembroke all-rounder wasn't the only Irishwoman to feature Down Under, with team mate Isobel Joyce (Both pictured above) turning out for Hobart Hurricanes.

Who will be next on the talent conveyor belt?
