According to a press release by Cricket Ireland, the selectors on Monday confirmed several squad changes before the first game of the 7th women’s Super Series, which is set to kick start from Sunday, 25th April at Pembroke Cricket Club.
The squad changes have been forced owing to injury or player unavailability. Also, several players are yet to return from overseas and will join the teams after they land back in Ireland.
The venues have also been confirmed for Super 50 Cup fixtures, however a number of Super 20 Trophy venues are yet to be finalised.
Typhoons: Laura Delany (captain), Ava Canning, Zara Craig, Rachel Delaney, Georgina Dempsey, Sarah Forbes, Rebecca Gough, Amy Hunter, Louise Little, Jane Maguire, Orla Prendergast, Celeste Raack, Freya Sargent, Rebecca Stokell, Mary Waldron.
Scorchers: Gaby Lewis (captain), Christina Coulter Reilly, Alana Dalzell, Shauna Kavanagh, Anna Kerrison, Maria Kerrison, Ashlee King, Hannah Little, Sophie MacMahon, Lara Maritz, Naomi Matthews, Caoimhe McCann, Kate McEvoy, Cara Murray, Leah Paul, Una Raymond-Hoey, Jenny Sparrow.
Carrie Archer, Chair of National Women’s Selectors, said: “It’s great to know that the Super Series will be underway shortly, and to know the senior squad will have a busy year – both domestically and with two separate world cup qualifying tournaments. Indeed, with those two tournaments on the near horizon, competition amongst the players during the Super Series will be keener than ever with places up for grabs on those squads.”
“We have a number of minor selection adjustments that were forced upon us through injury and unavailability, but both the Scorchers and Typhoons squads are full of talent. We had such a great series last year, and with the return of senior internationals to the competition like Lara Maritz and Mary Waldron, the 2021 series promises to be the most anticipated in the competitions seven year history.”
