Lanning, Perry and Sutherland to take on the Commonwealth Games

Meg Lanning (captain), Ellyse Perry and Annabel Sutherland have been named as part of the 15 players set to represent Australia at the upcoming Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.

The same squad will also compete in a Tri-Series against Ireland and Pakistan in Northern Ireland on the eve of the Games.

Women’s T20 cricket will make its debut at the Birmingham Games, with Australia to face Barbados, India and Pakistan in Group A. The semi-finals will be played at the conclusion of the pool rounds, with bronze and gold medal matches to follow.

Victorian duo, Tayla Vlaeminck and Georgia Wareham continue in their recovery from long term injuries.

“Georgia had an ACL reconstruction in February and is progressing well in the early stages of her rehab. She’s working towards a return to play in early 2023,” Australian Women’s Team Physiotherapist, Kate Beerworth said.

“Tayla is also progressing well in her rehab after sustaining a navicular stress fracture prior to the Ashes in January, a similar injury to what she suffered prior to the 2020 T20 World Cup. She’s been working with The Australian Ballet over the past few months and will continue to progress her rehab using a collaborative approach with Cricket Victoria, Cricket Australia and Australian Ballet staff. Tayla’s injury is long-term and she remains unavailable for the Tri-Series, Commonwealth Games and the WBBL, with no date set for her return at this stage.”
