Haynes and Carey named in squad

Sydney Thunder duo Nicola Carey and Rachael Haynes have both been selected for Australia’s squad for the Women’s World T20 and tour of Malaysia against Pakistan this October.


The 14-player Australian squad to tour Malaysia will play Pakistan in three One-Day Internationals and three T20 matches starting 18 October. Fifteen players were named in the group to compete at the ICC World T20 in the West Indies during November.

Haynes was also a stand out in that series for Australia. She made a vital 69 not out, and in partnership with national captain Meg Lanning (56 not out), guided Australia home at North Sydney in the opening match.

Haynes also snared a contender for catch of the season in Canberra on Friday.


Sydney Thunder Memberships are currently on sale with supporters being able to enjoy all five games at Spotless Stadium for $100 and enjoy more than $200 of additional benefits including access to Wet'n'Wild Sydney, the Sydney Royal Easter Show and $10 Movie Tickets.
