England announce squad for ICC U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup 2023

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has announced the national squad for the upcoming 2023 ICC Women’s Under-19 T20 World Cup, to be played in South Africa from 14-29 January. In addition to the 11 ICC full members, there are five other partners in the competition – Indonesia, Rwanda, Scotland, the United Arab Emirates and the USA. England will play in Group B alongside Pakistan, Zimbabwe and Rwanda.

According to an ECB press release, Lightning’s Chris Guest has been chosen as head coach following an open recruitment process. He will be joined by Laura Marsh (Sunrisers) and Darren Franklin (Central Sparks). Five non-traveling reserves were also selected. The reserves would travel but be fully involved throughout the preparatory period and act as substitutes should a substitute be needed: Emily Churms (Central Sparks), Charlotte Lambert (South East Stars), Bethan Miles (South East Stars), Jemima Spence ( South East Stars), Mary Taylor (Southern Vipers).

Selection was led by Richard Bedbrook, Head of England Women Performance Pathways. Bedbrook said: “It’s hugely exciting to name this squad and anticipate the opportunity that awaits the players.” “They are a great group of young cricketers with great potential at the start of their journey in the game. You will all benefit enormously from this experience – on and off the field. It’s important to compete in this age group, and it’s just as important to continue the learning process to get to the next level. I’m sure we’ll take a lot from the tournament.”

“It is our ambition that the next few months will be a meaningful life moment for all players and we are ensuring they use them as a springboard to make a difference in senior regional cricket and hopefully in the years to come.” “The ICC U19 Women’s T20 World Cup will provide an exciting platform for the best young players around the world and it will be really exciting to see our players compete against their peers in a global event,” he concluded.
