Alana King’s absence continues for Australia’s T20I series against South Africa

1 min read

Australia’s T20I squad remains settled, with legspinner Alana King out of the team and replaced by Grace Harris. King, who played 22 T20Is, has not featured in the format since the World Cup due to Georgia Wareham’s return from injury. However, King has played well in the 50-over format and recently produced a delivery compared to Shane Warne’s “ball-of-the-century”.

The Governor-General’s XI has been named to face South Africa in a T20 warm-up match, and it will include fast bowlers Milly Illingworth and Chloe Ainsworth. Allrounder Sophie Molineux, who recently returned from an ACL injury, will captain the team.

National selector Shawn Flegler is excited to see the young players in the squad play against South Africa. Young players Charli Knott and Kayla Stuchbree, from the Australia Defence Force, are also included.

The T20Is will be played on January 27, 28, and 30, followed by the ODIs from February 3-10. The tour concludes with a Test from February 15-18. Fast bowler Tayla Vlaeminck will also return for Victoria in the WNCL and Meg Lanning is also named in the Victoria squad.
