CA’s Head of Performance (Women’s Cricket) and National Selector, Shawn Flegler said:

“Firstly, I’d like to acknowledge Lauren Cheatle’s incredible resilience as she continues her recovery from the removal of a skin cancer on her neck.  

“A vibrant character and a valued team member, we were shattered to learn of Lauren’s latest set-back and will continue to support her throughout her recovery.

“Sophie Molineux has put in a huge amount of work off-field over the past 12 months and her performances in the WNCL and for the Governor-General’s XI since returning from an ACL injury have been impressive.

“A multi-skilled cricketer with strong leadership qualities, Sophie has been highly rated by the National Selection Panel for a long period of time.

“We’re extremely fortunate to have substantial spin-bowling depth within Australian cricket, so for Sophie to earn inclusion in the Test squad is fantastic reward for her perseverance.

“The three-day ‘Green vs. Gold’ match at Karen Rolton Oval is a new addition to supplement our Australia A program which aims to help prepare domestic players for all formats of international cricket.

“With several established international players named in the squad, we’re looking forward to seeing a high level of cricket across the three days.”
