Cricket Tasmania has confirmed the Tasmanian Roar playing list for 2016-17, with home-state player Emily Divin completing the picture.

Divin earns the 14th state contract after NSW import Georgia Redmayne and former Irish skipper Isobel Joyce arrived in Hobart this week.

Roar coach Julia Price said Veronica Pyke will again captain the team, this time with assistance from Brooke Hepburn.

“Brooke’s elevation to vice-captain comes from her ‘lead by example’ approach to her cricket particularly over the last two years,” Price said. “It’s great to have a Tasmanian-born player displaying these attributes to complement Veronica Pyke’s experienced leadership.”

Tasmania take on Queensland in Brisbane in their first fixture on October 13.

Tasmanian Roar: Veronica Pyke, Brooke Hepburn, Erin Burns, Emily Divin, Katelyn Fryett, Corinne Hall, Julie Hunter, Isobel Joyce, Erin Lawler, Sasha Moloney, Meg Phillips, Celeste Raack, Georgia Redmayne, Emma Thompson
