Schutt in for home Aussie series

25 September 2019

Striker Megan Schutt will represent Australia in the upcoming home series against Sri Lanka

Adelaide Strikers quick Megan Schutt has retained her place in Australia’s ODI and T20I squads ahead of the team’s home series against Sri Lanka beginning on Sunday.

The club’s WBBL|02 Most Valuable Player, Schutt played a crucial role in Australia’s undefeated 6-0 sweep of the West Indies earlier this month, finishing as the leading wicket-taker of the tour and picking up her second international hat-trick in the final ODI.

Cricket Australia’s National Selection Panel has understandably made minimal changes to its squad to tackle Sri Lanka, with Erin Burns the unlucky player to miss out in the ODI squad.

The two nations will contest three T20Is in Sydney and three ODIs in Brisbane, with ICC Women’s Championship points on the line in the 50-over fixtures.

Australia holds top spot on the Championship ladder, two wins ahead of England having played three less matches than the World Cup champions. The top four ranked teams will gain direct qualification to the ICC Women’s World Cup 2021 in New Zealand at the end of the Championship.

Young Strikers teammate Tahlia McGrath has also been named in a Cricket Australia squad to play Sri Lanka in a T20 at Hurstville Oval on Friday.

Allrounder McGrath will captain the squad in another acknowledgement of her growing leadership qualities.
