HERVEY Bay's Beth Mooney was named Brisbane Heat's Most Valuable Player for the second consecutive Women's Big Bash League on Friday night.

Mooney, who played her junior cricket on the Fraser Coast and is a former Xavier Catholic College student, belted 482 runs at an average of 43.81 during the WBBL.

She hit five half-centuries and finished the season with a strike rate of 115.58.

Mooney, who was also named the WBBL's player of the year, scored her first One Day International century against New Zealand in February.

The batter/wicket-keeper has now played nine ODIs for the Southern Stars, along with 13 Twenty20 Internationals.

Mooney will return to England in August to play for Yorkshire in the Kia Super League.

She will be one of six Australians to play in the United Kingdom's equivalent of the WBBL. Mooney's aim for this season is to secure a place in Australia's World Cup squad. The World Cup will be played in June.
