This year’s edition of the tournament will feature five matches played in Northern Ireland, as Cricket Ireland continues its efforts to grow the profile and accessibility of the women’s game in the North. The Dragons, Scorchers, and Typhoons will be captained by Irish internationals Rebecca Stokell, Gaby Lewis, and Leah Paul, respectively.

The Dragons and Typhoons will be coached by James Cameron-Dow and Paul Davidge, respectively, while the Scorchers will have a new head coach for 2023 after Glenn Querl moved to a full-time role with the Ireland Women’s senior and pathway set-up. The announcement of the new coach will be made shortly.

The Scorchers squad will be led by captain Gaby Lewis, who said that preparations for the tournament have been going well. She praised the new players coming through and emphasized the competitiveness of the Super Series, saying that the team will be “there to be shot at” as back-to-back double-winners.
