Cricket Australia’s Youth Selection Panel (YSP) has named 25 players to take part in next month’s Under 19 Lanning vs. Perry Series to be played in Brisbane.
The most promising female players across the country will come together for three T20 matches over two days to test their skills against fellow up-and-coming cricketers.
Twelve players names in the squad are contracted for the upcoming WNCL season, including Tasmanian Amy Smith who took 3-33 in the 2021-22 WNCL Final to help the Tigers a historic first Ruth Preddy Cup Victory.
The matches will act as the first of several opportunities for players to put their names forward for the inaugural ICC U19 Women’s World Cup in South Africa to be held in January 2023 with the final selection to take place at the U19 National Championships in December.
All matches will be live streamed on FrogBox, with links to be shared shortly.
Former Australian cricketer Sarah Aley has been appointed Head Coach of the Australian Women’s Under 19 team and will be supported by Assistant Coaches Erin Osborne & Darius Wyatt.
The selection was finalised by the YSP with the support of State and Territory Associations through nominations based on performances.
Shawn Flegler, Cricket Australia’s Head of Women’s Performance, said:
“After the difficulties presented by the pandemic in the past two seasons, we’re thrilled the Lanning vs Perry Series will return this year as part of what has become an extensive player pathway for the best young female cricketers across Australia.
“It’s an exciting period coming up for this age group with the inaugural Women’s U19 World Cup in January and this series is the first of several opportunities for players to put their names forward for selection.
“With a number of WBBL & WNCL contracted players involved in the series, we’re looking forward to an exceptionally high standard of cricket across the three matches.”
