Ireland’s premier domestic women’s cricket competition, 2019 Super 3s Series’s schedule has been released by the national cricket board of Ireland.
The Series comprises three teams – Dragons, Scorchers and Typhoons – who play a multi-format competition that encompasses 50-over and T20 matches. The opening match will see the defending champions Dragons take on the Scorchers on 19 May 2019 at North Kildare Cricket Club.
Showing her excitement, the Scorchers captain, Shauna Kavanagh said, “Quantifying the importance of the Super 3’s competition is difficult in that the impact and contribution the competition has already had - and will continue to have - for women’s cricket in Ireland is huge. One of the key contributions is the expansion of the existing player pool capable of progressing to the international stage. There have been some really impressive players coming through to the international set-up over the last two years partially resulting from the opportunities that the Super 3’s competition provides.”
“I think the Super 3’s pathway also provides women and girls across the country with a visible and attainable development structure that can only encourage and promote participation.”
