Three Kent women named in England squad for Sri Lanka tour

Thursday 2nd September 2010

England women“s selectors today named three Kent players in a 15-player squad for the tour of Sri Lanka in November.

Captain Charlotte Edwards (pictured)has been selected along with Lydia Greenway and Susie Rowe. England will play two One Day Internationals and an International Twenty20 series in Colombo, from 14 – 22 November.

Commenting on the selection Clare Connor, Head of Women“s Cricket, said: “The selectors have named a dynamic England women’s squad for the forthcoming tour of Sri Lanka. Without three influential players, opportunities are being given to Academy graduates Fran Wilson, Susie Rowe and Lauren Griffiths. All three players have had excellent seasons for their Counties: Somerset, Kent and Cheshire respectively. They also impressed for the Academy in India earlier this year and against New Zealand in July. It is essential that we always have a keen eye on player succession planning. Blooding some of our Academy talent on the full international stage in Sri Lanka will show exactly where we are in terms of the journey towards the World Cup in 2013.”
