Molly Strano replaced Tayla Vlaeminck who is suffering from a foot injury.
Tayla Vlaeminck, an all-rounder who plays for Australia Women and Victoria Women, has been ruled out of the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup due to a foot injury. Vlaeminck’s scans revealed a stress response of the third metatarsal and an early stress fracture of the navicular.
Vlaeminck has represented Australia in 16 games and is regarded as one of the fastest in women’s cricket. ‘Tayla has been in brilliant form of late and established herself as one of the premier fast bowlers in international cricket. No one ever wants to see a player miss a major tournament in these kinds of circumstances, but I have no doubt she will bounce back from this setback and play a leading role in Australian squads for many years to come’, Matthew Mott stated, the head coach of the squad.
On the other hand, Vlaeminck is replaced by Molly Strano who was able to take a total of 22 wickets during a women’s domestic T20 competition. ‘We are fortunate to have great depth across Australian cricket and Molly enters the squad in great form having recently been named the domestic player of the year’, Mott said.
Australia Women’s Squad: Alyssa Healy(w), Beth Mooney, Ashleigh Gardner, Meg Lanning(c), Ellyse Perry, Annabel Sutherland, Rachael Haynes, Nicola Carey, Jess Jonassen, Megan Schutt, Delissa Kimmince, Sophie Molineux, Georgia Wareham, Erin Burns, Molly Strano
As of now, Australia (-166.67) is on the lead against nine other squads. To keep you updated, visit Betwala’s page for more cricket odds.
