Lancashire Thunder contingent to be involved in England Women's tour

Lancashire Thunder contingent to be involved in England Women's tour

Lancashire Thunder's Danielle Wyatt has been named in the England Women's touring squad for the Sri Lanka tour in Colombo next month.

She will be joined by Kate Cross, Sophie Ecclestone and Emma Lamb who will join up with the squad for the Abu Dhab training camp before the tour. 

After taking 2-28 on ODI debut in the Caribbean, 17-year-old Sophie Ecclestone is unavailable for selection to tour in Sri Lanka due to school commitments, and Somerset seam-bowler Anya Shrubsole has been ruled-out as she continues to recover from the neck injury that forced her to return from Jamaica earlier this month. 

Prior to arriving in Colombo, the squad will take part in a six-day training camp in Abu Dhabi alongside members of the England Women’s Senior Academy, from November 1st – November 7th, to help them acclimatise for the four-match series in Colombo.  Overall 23 players will travel to the UAE for the preparation camp, with one spot in Heather Knight’s 15-strong squad to take on Sri Lanka still up for grabs.

England Women’s Head Coach, Mark Robinson, said:

“I’m really happy with the character and fight that the team showed to win the recent series against the West Indies in the Caribbean, and we now look ahead to the fresh challenge of taking on Sri Lanka in their own conditions, with the ambition of finishing the busiest ever year for the England women’s team on a high. 

“We have initially selected a squad of 14 for the four-match series in Colombo next month, with the 15th player due to be confirmed following our preparation camp in Abu Dhabi, which will involve a wider group of 23 players.  The involvement of some of our younger players in the training camp in the UAE presents a fantastic opportunity for their development, and gives us an excellent chance to continue to develop the depth of the talent pool underneath the England women’s squad.

“Sophie Ecclestone showed a huge amount of promise in the two matches she played in the Caribbean, and she will be involved with the preparation camp in Abu Dhabi, before heading back to school.”
