Share post:

The Cricket Australia Women’s National Selection Panel (WNSP) yesterday announced a 12-player squad that will play the West Indies in two Women’s T20 matches in Canberra next month.

The West Indies will arrive in Australia on 17 October and the matches will serve as tour matches ahead of their Commonwealth Bank International Women’s Series against the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars, which starts on 2 November.

Speaking about the squad WNSP Chair Julie Savage said: “The tour matches will provide an excellent opportunity for the next tier of T20 talent in the country to test themselves against one of the most dynamic teams in women’s cricket.

“Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars players Ellyse Perry and Jess Cameron have been included in the squad to provide them with further match practice following interrupted preparation due to their respective injuries, while the matches will also provide further elite competition for Delissa Kimmince and Megan Schutt.”

Matches will be played on October 21 at Stirling Oval, Canberra and the following day at Manuka Oval, also in Canberra

Cricket Australia XI: Ellyse Perry (Captain), Jess Cameron (Vice-Captain), Jemma Barsby, Nicola Carey, Rhiannon Dick, Grace Harris, Emma Inglis, Delissa Kimmince, Beth Mooney, Angela Reakes, Megan Schutt, Kara Sutherland.  (PR)
