Former Scotland Women captain, Abbi Aitken-Drummond is back into the international cricket arena. She has made it to The Wildcats’ squad for the upcoming 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup qualifiers on the home soil.

Qualifiers with just a few days away, the 28-year-old Abbi Aitken-Drummond in a recent interview with Cricket Scotland’s representative spoke about her comeback and said, “I have been in and around the squad over the last year or so, but now to be back fully involved training and playing is great. There has been a big turnover of players, but the young ones coming through have so much talent and they are doing well. I am just trying to take the younger ones under my wing and help them along with my experience. I want all of them to reach their potential and I will give everything I have.”

Expressing her joy on getting the opportunity of hosting the qualifiers in Scotland, she said, “I have been trying to impress on the youngsters just how special it will be to play in a big event at home.” “We have been working hard and we cannot wait to get started soon,” she added.
