“Playing the Fairbreak organization is fantastic. FairBreak has given great opportunities for Associate countries’ players in the women’s game to show their skills against the world’s best. Shaun Martyn and his team have been inspirational to women cricketers around the world, and it will be an honour to play them in a three-game series which will bring women from all parts of the world together. On the field again it’s a great chance for the team to showcase their skills in front of our home supporters.” Said Shane on Netherlands playing FairBreak.
Deitz further added, “We have a fantastic summer of cricket ahead for the team with great opportunities in T20 and 50 over cricket all at home in front of our home supporters. The girls have worked really hard over the winter and early in the summer and are ready for the international summer ahead.”
“Building on from a great tour in Zimbabwe at the end of 2021 where the team showed that we can be competitive against higher-ranked teams we have a chance again to take on some quality opposition on our home grounds.”
The 22 Yard stretch that molded me, is what I hold sacred. A cricketer weaving life’s innings into words. A Rohit Sharma Admirer always. I believe writing and cricket aren’t passions, but ways of life, so truly living the dream!
