Louth cricketer Arran Brindle has been selected to the Enland Women’s squad for the upcoming one-day and T20 international matches which kick off in Louth on July 1.
The 31-year-old all-rounder has been called up to the 15-player squad for two NatWest Women’s one-day internationals and two NatWest Women’s International T20 matches against Pakistan.
Natasha Farrant, a 17 year-old left-arm seamer from Kent, Surrey all-rounder Natalie Sciver and Yorkshire wicketkeeper-batter Lauren Winfield have received their first call-ups to the squad, which is without Katherine Brunt, Holly Colvin and Laura Marsh.
After the first game at Louth, the second NatWest Women’s one-day International and two NatWest Women’s International T20 matches will be played at the National Cricket Performance Centre at Loughborough University on July 3 and 5 respectively.
Head of England Women’s Cricket Clare Connor said: “We are thrilled to be hosting Pakistan in our first block of summer internationals.
“The ICC Women’s World Cup in India in February, with a huge global TV audience, brilliantly showcased the top eight teams in the world and we are delighted to host both Pakistan and Australia in England in the next few months.
“As we embark on a new ICC Women’s World Cup cycle, the matches against Pakistan will provide us with valuable opportunity to refresh certain elements of our ODI strategy and to expose a wider pool of players to the international arena.”
