We’re an experienced group and having Amy back in the fold only adds to our batting depth and on-field leadership,” she stated.

She has a proven record at the top of the order and has scored heavily against Australia in the past so her experience will be invaluable.”
“We have a slightly bigger squad for this tour gave the strict rules and regulations in the current climate. However, the extra time together will be beneficial for the group and development as cricketers,” also added.
