Former England player, Sarah Taylor, has pursued Welsh Fire in The Hundred. The 31-year-old resigned in 2019 and has as of late joined the Sussex training staff to work low maintenance with the men’s crew just as Sussex Cricket Pathway in the forthcoming season.
Taylor played 10 Tests, 126 ODIs and 90 T20Is and affected 232 excusals across formats.
“There has been a real buzz about The Hundred, and especially the women’s competition, We’ve got the best players from around the world involved and the temptation to be part of it was too great to resist. I’m so excited at the prospect of playing again. It’ll be really special to get back out there and be part of a Welsh Fire side that hopefully can have a great first season.” Said by Sarah Taylor
There has been another adjustment in the crew with Georgia Wareham supplanting Jess Jonassen, who has chosen to quit the competition as a result of individual reasons. Wareham has featured in 19 ODIs and 32 T20Is for Australia and has 53 wickets up until this point.
“It is fantastic news that Sarah and Georgia will be part of our squad this summer, Sarah is one of the best cricketers England has ever produced. It goes without saying she would improve any side and we are delighted she’s signed with us. Her experience and ability to influence games will be vital as we look to establish some strong foundations in our first campaign”. Said by Head Coach Matthew Mott.
“Georgia’s has been an integral part of the Australian side and she’ll bring a real x-factor to our squad. She is a dependable and damaging leg-spinner and has developed her batting as a powerful middle-order player with the ability to clear the fence. She is developing into a complete cricketer with her outstanding fielding making her an exciting addition to the Fire Squad.”
Welsh Fire starts their opening match on July 24 in Leeds against Northern Superchargers.
