Four Sixers named in Australian Women’s squad

21 August 2020

Four Sydney Sixers have been named in an 18-player Australian squad for three One-Day Internationals and three Twenty20 Internationals against New Zealand scheduled for September.

Sixers captain Ellyse Perry, Alyssa Healy, Ashleigh Gardner and Erin Burns have all been selected. All four were part of the squad that won the Women’s T20 World Cup in March with Sixers WBBL head coach Ben Sawyer.

Perry’s inclusion is subject to fitness as she continues her recovery from a significant hamstring injury.

The coveted Rose Bowl Trophy will be up for grabs during the ODI series. Australia is the current holder of the Rose Bowl having defeated New Zealand 3-0 in their last encounter in 2019.

The schedule for the series has matches in both New South Wales and Queensland but given the current COVID situation changes may be required. Cricket Australia will continue to work with relevant authorities and advise any changes.
