Lanning, Perry & Sutherland picked for World Cup

Victorian Trio Meg Lanning (c), Ellyse Perry and Annabel Sutherland have been selected in the 15-player squad for the upcoming ICC Women’s World Cup in New Zealand.

Speaking on the squad, National Selector, Shawn Flegler said:

“We’ve been able to put together a really talented squad with some fresh faces as well as players with significant World Cup experience.

Victorian’s Sophie Molineux, Tayla Vlaeminck and Georgia Wareham will unfortunately miss the tournament through injury.

“Sophie Molineux unfortunately misses out due to injury; she was unlikely to be available until the backend of the tournament and with limited match time and having to complete ten days managed isolation, it was a tough call, but we weren’t prepared to take the risk.

“It’s incredibly disappointing for Tayla to miss out as well. We’re really disappointed for her after injuring her foot again and will continue to work with her as she recovers” Fleglar said.

Australia will travel to New Zealand on February 10 where players and staff will complete 10 days managed isolation, before the team begins its World Cup campaign against defending champions, England on Saturday 5 March in Hamilton.
