Women’s Ashes 2023: In a significant development, All-rounder Danielle Gibson has been included in the 16-person team for England’s three-game Women’s Ashes series against Australia. The talented cricketer impressed the selectors with her performances and received a debut T20I call-up.
This comes after she was selected as a traveling reserve for the 2023 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup later this year and got a spot in the Test team for the one-off game at Trent Bridge.
The fact that Danielle Gibson made the T20I team is praised for both her outstanding performance at the regional level and her ability to make a big impact.
Head coach Jon Lewis acknowledged his excitement at having Gibson on the team, applauding her outstanding play and her capacity to have a good impact on the game.
Women’s Ashes 2023: Issy Wong is another inclusion to the England Women’s T20I squad
Issy Wong, a young pacer who wasn’t picked for the T20 World Cup, is another exciting inclusion to the England T20I squad. Wong recently participated for England Women A in T20 matches against Australia A, proving her talent and earning a spot in the team.
The team also includes Maia Bouchier, Alice Capsey, Freya Davies, Charlie Dean, Sarah Glenn, and Lauren Winfield-Hill alongside Gibson and Wong. These individuals once again proved their worth and earned their places by being a part of the T20 World Cup squad in February.
After losing the one-off Test match, England will be eager to make a comeback since the Women’s Ashes series is on the line. The T20 games, which are scheduled to take place on July 1, July 5, and July 8 at Edgbaston, the Oval, and Lord’s, respectively, offer a chance for England to close the points difference and bring back momentum.
The three T20 games between England and Australia are crucial since each win gets two points. The addition of Danielle Gibson and Issy Wong to the squad offers the team more depth and potential as they attempt to recover from their most recent defeat.
