The England women players will return across the six venues for training on their own before starting small group training.
Hoping for a Women’s Tri-Series which will involve India & South Africa to be scheduled later this year, the ECB has announced that 24 players will return to individual training from June 22. The Indian women’s team was scheduled to travel to England for a bilateral series which comprises three ODIs & three T20Is but he tour remains postponed currently for time being. The ECB is trying to convince both the BCCI & cricket South Africa to agree to play a tri-series later this year but nothing has been fixed yet.
“The England women players will return across six venues, initially training on their own before progressing to small group training. Squads for specific formats will be named in due course, subject to confirmation of the proposed series,” the ECB said in a statement.
The training sessions of England Women’s team are set to take under the medical guidelines & bio-secure conditions that have been set up for the England Men’s Team. The players will be trained at National National Performance Centre, Loughborough; Emerald Headingley, Yorkshire; The Kia Oval, London; Bristol County Ground, Bristol; Chester Boughton Hall CC, Lancashire; and the 1st Central County Ground, Hove.
“We remain hopeful of playing cricket this summer and it’s exciting for this group of players to be able to return to training,” Jonathan Finch, Director, England Women’s Cricket, said. “We’ve had great support from the First-Class counties with the use of their venues, and we’re grateful to them for that, and hopefully this is one step closer towards England Women returning to the field this summer.”
