Cricket Australia (CA) has today named the Australian squad for the inaugural ICC Under 19 Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa.

The Youth Selection Panel selected a 15-player squad following the conclusion of the 2022-23 Under 19 Female National Championships in Perth yesterday.

Australia’s squad, which contains eight players with domestic experience, will be led by head coach Sarah Aley and her assistants, Erin Osborne and Dulip Samaraweera.

Australia will play group matches against Bangladesh, the USA and Sri Lanka at the World Cup which gets underway on January 14.

NSW Metro claimed the U19 National Championships title, defeating Victoria Country by six wickets in the Final at the WACA Ground yesterday.

The win capped a stellar week for NSW Metro skipper Claire Moore, who was named Player of the Tournament. Moore scored 371 runs at an average of 92.75 across the National Championships, including an unbeaten 62 in the Final to lead her side to victory.
