MELBOURNE, 21 MARCH 2024: In a big boost to Cricket Australia’s multicultural drive, two Indian-origin players are all set to tour Sri Lanka with Australia’s women’s U19 team soon. 

Hasrat Gill and Samara Dulvin are among the 15 players selected for the Australian women’s U19 squad, which will embark on a tour to Sri Lanka for a tri-nation tournament.

During this tour, Australia will compete in four T20 matches, with the first scheduled for March 28, followed by two One-Day matches in April.

The squad was selected following the Lanning vs Perry Series and the Under-19 National Championships last year, aiming to provide players with valuable experience in preparation for the 2025 ICC Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup in Malaysia.

Sonya Thompson, Head of National Development at Cricket Australia, stated, “The tri-series in Sri Lanka gives our under-19 squad a great development opportunity as part of our preparation for the T20 World Cup next year.”
