Leg-spinner Sarah Glenn earned her first appearance on the English women’s team before being used against Pakistan in the ODI and T20I.
England announced in December a 15-member squad for its White Ball Tour, which will be dealing with Pakistan in Malaysia. It is planned to play three ODIs and as many T20Is. The series starts on the 9th of December.
Twenty-year-old Glenn earned her place after scoring 11 goals in this year’s Women’s Cricket Super League for semi-finalist Loughborough Lightning. Even the all-rounder Mady Villiers, who made her first and only international appearance in a T20I in this year’s Ashes series in July, has retained her place in the squad. She returned numbers of 2/20 in this game.

England also recalled fast bowler Freya Davies, who played Sri Lanka in the away series T20I in March this year.
England wants to find the right combination for the mega event with the ICC women’s T20 Worlds in less than 100 days. Her skipper, Heather Knight, said that this tour is “an opportunity to start a new era,” with some new talented faces in the mix. “We look forward to getting out there and returning to international cricket.
“It’s been a couple of months since our last game, and a lot has happened during that time, and this tour is an opportunity to start a new era and move forward with some younger faces in the group, as well as a lot of proven stuff.” I am very happy with the group and we can hardly wait for the next few months. “
All six games will be played at Kinrara Oval in Malaysia. This will not be a job under new head coach Lisa Keightley, who will take office in January. Interim coach Alastair Maiden will also lead the team in their absence.
