2007-08 AIS-Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars and Shooting Stars squads announced

 

 

Australia’s national selectors today named an 18-player women’s squad for the 2007-08 season, with six changes to last year’s list.


Joining the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS)–Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars squad for the first time are Sarah Aley and Charlotte Anneveld (New South Wales), Emma Sampson (South Australia), Emma Inglis (Victoria) and Renee Chappell (Western Australia).


All-rounder Kris Britt, a squad member in 2004-05, returns to the national list after a solid year with the South Australia Scorpions in the Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL), finishing in the top six run scorers (279 at 55.80) and picking up seven wickets at 27.57.

 

Inglis, 18, has been promoted into the national squad after just two seasons in the interstate competition. She was this year’s WNCL leading wicket-keeper with 12 dismissals and joins the national list from the youth squad, the Commonwealth Bank Shooting Stars.

 

All-rounders Chappell and Aley have also been elevated from the Commonwealth Bank Shooting Stars squad as has Sampson who, with 10 wickets at 24.10, finished alongside Anneveld (15 wickets at 15.47) in the top 10 bowlers in this season’s WNCL.

 

Aley captained the Commonwealth Bank Shooting Stars on its recent tour of New Zealand, a side which included Chappell and Inglis while Sampson made her one-day international debut for Australia during last month’s four nation series in India.

 

In other changes, Cathryn Fitzpatrick has retired from national duties while Kelly Applebee, Lauren Ebsary, Michelle Goszko, Julie Hayes and Jenny Wallace have been omitted.

 

Former Australian captain and current chair of selectors Margaret Jennings said the 2009 World Cup was the main focus for the squad.

 

“Maintaining a blend of experience and young talent in the squad is important for the next 12 months of competition and with the 2009 World Cup on the horizon,” she said.

 

“We have promoted some young players from the Commonwealth Bank Shooting Stars squad and with the retirement of Cathryn and loss of other experienced players there is a gap to be filled and that also presents opportunity for others to take the next step.”

 

The AIS-Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars squad was chosen by the national women’s selection panel consisting of former Australian players Jennings (Chairperson), Chris Matthews and Wendy Weir.

 

Australia’s next assignment is the Rose Bowl series against New Zealand in Darwin in July. The national squad will attend training camps at the Centre of Excellence in Brisbane in June (8-11) and September (14-17).
