Australia’s world-famous women’s cricket team prepare for their first overseas tour for the best part of 18 months as they head to New Zealand for a three-match ODI series and T20 in three games

This will give players a chance to continue their incredible world record of consecutive ODI wins as they prepare for the rescheduled 2022 World Cup in New Zealand

So they can build on the momentum of their successful 2020 T20 World Cup campaign with the Commonwealth Games and another World Cup to come in the next two years

There hasn’t been a lot of international cricket for the players, however, they have worked hard in domestic cricket after a successful WBBL and the current WNCL season

While established stars like Captain Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry will all be on the plane to New Zealand, the selectors took the opportunity to bring new talent to the squad

They are an exciting and young side against a New Zealand side they dominated in Brisbane towards the end of 2020

There are many familiar faces in the squad, with the highlights being that two young rapids have the potential to potentially make their debut

Teenage girls Hannah Darlington and Darcie Brown both impressed at WBBL06 and were first called to the Australian squad

National selector Shawn Flegler thinks their inclusion is just a reward for their form and signals the team’s intention to prepare for the two years of tournaments ahead of them

“Darcie had a great WBBL rebel campaign with the Adelaide Strikers and also made a great WNCL start with the SA Scorpions,” said Flegler

“Her ability to get out quickly made her an exciting prospect at only 17 years old
“We also welcome Hannah Darlington to the squad after playing a pivotal role in the WBBL Rebel Championship | Sydney Thunder 06

“She was brought into the squad mostly with a T20 accent as we look to the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham and the 2023 ICC T20 Women’s World Cup in South Africa” ​​

Rapide Tayla Vlaeminck also returns to the squad after missing the T20 World Cup due to injury
