The tour will be the first time Australia has sent an Under 19 women's team overseas, and the firs time the side has played in 15-years, having last played in 2003 against England.

Hannah Darlington and Rachael Trenaman, two members of Thunder's WBBL squad are included as is Hayley Silver-Holmes (pictured below), a member of Thunder's Academy and WBBL Rookie.

They will be couched by former Thunder Assistant Coach Leah Poulton. The tri-series will pit Australia against South Africa's Emerging Women and England Women's Academy across four 50-over matches and two Twenty20s. The final will be played as a 50-over match on 28 April.

The leadership duties will be split across the formats, with 16-year-old all-rounder Rachael Trenaman named captain of the 50-over side.
