Victorian Premier Cricket Women's All-Stars v Victorian Women's Invitational Team

A Victorian invitational side will take on an all-star team selected from Victorian Premier Cricket this Wednesday night at Shepley Oval in Dandenong.

Both teams boast current and former Victorian contracted players. The Premier Cricket All-Stars will be led by current Melbourne Cricket Club captain & coach Teagan Parker, while the Victorian team will be captained by Anna Lanning.

This will be the inaugural fixture between the two sides, but Cricket Victoria’s General Manager of Premier Cricket Liam Murphy says there are plans in place for the match to become a yearly event.

“We’re very excited to be introducing this match into the Women’s Premier Cricket calendar and look forward to making it a permanent fixture.

“There is a huge amount of talent within the Premier Cricket ranks so providing these players an opportunity to play against some of the best players in the state is an important step forward. We think playing under lights will also provide a unique experience and further develop skills required at the next level.

“I’d like to thank the players, Jarrad Loughman the City of Greater Dandenong and Cricket Victoria for their efforts in getting this match off the ground”.

Current Head Coach of the Victorian Women’s Team Jarrad Loughman will coach the Victorian side with Kim Littlejohn (Ringwood) coaching the Premier All-Stars.
