England Women U19’s side will take on Sri Lanka and Australia in a Tri Series

The England Women U19 squad to tour Sri Lanka to take on the hosts and Australia in a Tri Series has been confirmed.

Both T20 and 50-over formats will be played in late March and early April with the dates and venues to be announced in due course.

Within the 15-player group are a number of players that attended the inaugural ICC Women’s U19 World Cup in South Africa in January 2023 and who are still age-eligible. They are joined by some players who are U19 for the 2024 season only and some players who will also remain as U19 players for the second Women’s U19 World Cup in Malaysia in January 2025 and therefore will be in contention for that programme later in 2024.

Head coach Chris Guest said: “We are all looking forward to our forthcoming series in Sri Lanka. We have selected a good mix of those who have represented this age group before and those who are new. It’s a really exciting squad who are relishing the chance to compete against quality opposition. To have the opportunity to play T20 and 50-over cricket is really important.
It’s a chance for the players to be exposed to and experience different conditions and will present excellent learning opportunities. These will help support the development of the players within their regions and hopefully one day to play for the senior team.”
