Beaumont, Farrant and Greenway in England training camp in Sri Lanka

Friday 4th December 2015

Women

Kent trio Tammy Beaumont, Tash Farrant and Lydia Greenway will take part in a two-week England training camp in Sri Lanka.

With nine England players playing in the Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) in Australia, the eleven remaining centrally contracted players will be joined by seven members of the England Women’s Academy (EWA) squad.

The training camp, which will take place from Tuesday 8to Monday 21December in Colombo, will be the first time that new England Women’s Head Coach, Mark Robinson, will work with the players.

In addition to skills and strength and conditioning training, Robinson will get the chance to see them play in some 50-over and T20 matches against local opposition.

ECB’s Director of England Women’s Cricket, Clare Connor, said:“I am sure that the nine England women’s players involved in WBBL are very excited about the competition getting underway this weekend.

"The tournament will present a great opportunity for them to test their skills in a new environment and challenge them to be match winners for their teams.

“The two-week camp in Colombo for the remainder of the England Women’s Performance squad will form an important part of the winter training programme.

"With the tour to South Africa in the New Year just around the corner and the ICC Women’s World T20 in India next March, we need to make sure that all of the players in the squad are as best prepared as possible to perform for England, should they be selected.”

England Women’s Head Coach Mark Robinson said:“I’m really looking forward to meeting the players and getting to know them.

"Next year is a hugely important twelve months for the team, and it is important that we all hit the ground running in South Africa in February. The two-week camp in Colombo will give me the perfect opportunity to start working with them.”

England women will next be in action in February 2016 when they will travel to South Africa to play a three match One-Day International series and three match Twenty20 International series. The England women’s squad for this tour will be announced early next year.
