Commenting on the squad, new WNSP Chair Julie Savage said; “The WNSP has named a very strong squad to face the New Zealand White Ferns next month.

 

 

“Alyssa Healy, Ellyse Perry and Julie Hunter all return to the squad, while Shelley Nitschke, Sharon Millanta and Annie-Rose Maloney are the players out of the team.

 

 

“Ellyse returns after having football commitments last series, Julie returns from a shoulder injury and Alyssa is back in the squad as a batter after some good performances in the WT20.

 

 

“Shelley has retired from cricket while Annie-Rose and Sharon make way for the experienced combination of Ellyse and Julie.”
