Sixers prominent in Australian Women’s T20 and ODI squads

25 September 2019

Sixers WBBL captain Ellyse Perry.

Congratulations to our four Sixers selected in the Australian Women's T20 & ODI squads to play Sri Lanka this month and our two star teenagers, Hayley Silver-Holmes and Stella Campbell, chosen for the Cricket Australia XI.

Sydney Sixers WBBL captain Ellyse Perry, wicketkeeper-batter Alyssa Healy and allrounder Ashleigh Gardner have all retained their place in the Australian Women’s T20 and One-Day International squads for both upcoming series against Sri Lanka.

Sixers off-spinning allrounder Erin Burns also retains her place in the national Twenty20 squad after making her T20 and One-Day International debut for Australia in the West Indies this month.

All four were part of the Australian squad that completed a clean sweep in the three T20 and three One-Day Internationals against the West Indies.

The T20 series against Sri Lanka starts this Sunday at North Sydney Oval, where the Sixers will start their WBBL|05 campaign on 18 October in the Sydney Smash against the Thunder.

Australia will play Sri Lanka in three T20 Internationals, all at North Sydney Oval, and three One-Day International matches in Brisbane over the next fortnight.

Two of the Sixers rising young stars, seam bowling allrounder Hayley Silver-Holmes, 16, and fast bowler Stella Campbell, 17, have also been selected in a Cricket Australia XI to play Sri Lanka in a limited-overs tour match at Hurstville Oval on Friday.

Sixers WBBL Assistant Coach, and former Australian player, Leah Poulton is the Head Coach of the Cricket Australia XI.

Healy returns to Australia after another ultra-consistent tour in the shorter formats.

Across the six matches in the Caribbean, Healy scored 349 runs at 69.8, and was named Player of the T20 series.

Her runs tally included her second One-Day International century scoring 122 from 105 balls in the opening match.

Perry was named Player of the One-Day Series after her impressive return of 178 runs, without being dismissed, and five wickets at the miserly average of eight.

The world class allrounder scored a pivotal 112 not out from 118 in the second One-Day match of the West Indian series.

Commenting on the Cricket Australia XI squad, Poulton said the match was an important step in the development of a number of 16-year-olds selected including Silver-Holmes.

“No doubt they’ll benefit from the experience of being around more experienced players,” said Poulton.
