On her debut, Tryon made an immediate impact by taking a wicket with her very first ball bowled. Her talent and dedication have been crucial in her rise to the role of vice-captain of the South Africa women’s cricket team.

Chloe Tryon has also achieved significant success in T20I cricket, scoring 1112 runs and taking 34 wickets in her 96 matches. Her best bowling figures of 4/15 highlight her ability to dismantle opposing batting lineups with exceptional skill.

In Chennai, the South African women’s cricket team is set to embark on a critical three-match T20I series against India starting from July 5. This series holds immense importance for South Africa as they use it as a platform to fine-tune their strategies ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Unfortunately, injury prevented Tryon from participation in the third T20I of the Sri Lanka women tour of South Africa, but she did contribute in the first two matches, claiming a total of 2 wickets. On this all-format tour of India, she also was out of action from the one-off Test in Chennai and the 3-match ODI series in Bangalore but is set to return and it’ll be a major boost for South Africa who are finding their first win on this tour.

Chloe Tryon’s return to the South African national team was marked by a strong desire to contribute. The all-rounder, who had recently battled injuries, was said to be enthusiastic about proving her worth as the Proteas geared up for the upcoming T20I series in India.

Tryon acknowledged the difficulty of being sidelined, expressing her desire to be on the field while watching the team play in India. The 30-year-old was said to be thoroughly refining her skills in the nets, focusing on facing both pace and spin bowling. Her power-hitting ability could be a valuable asset for South Africa against a strong Indian team playing at home.

Tryon’s batting approach had also undergone a shift. She explained that in the past, she placed immense pressure on herself to score quickly, often leading to early dismissals. However, she had adopted a calmer approach, focusing on staying at the crease for longer stretches.

Looking ahead to the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh, Tryon emphasized the importance of consistency for the Proteas. She believed they had shown glimpses of brilliance but struggled to maintain consistency across all aspects of the game and that finding consistency across departments is their key focus.

Tyron mentioned, “There were key moments in games sometimes where I thought we could step up a bit more while watching from home. We’ve played a lot of good cricket in patches. We’ve had good stages and then some not-so-good parts. Idea is to be more consistent across departments.”
