Trenaman Impresses In England

01 July 2019

Rachel Trenaman

Leg-spinning allrounder top-scored for Australia A in practice match against England

Sydney Thunder’s Rachel Trenaman top-scored for Australia A in a practice match against a strong England attack in Loughborough on Saturday.

Trenaman, 18, made 73 from 92 balls in the Australia A total of 9/260. The visitors lost the match by 81 runs after England posted 8/341 from its 50 overs.

In her first match for Australia A on English soil, coming to the crease at No. 7, Trenaman reached the boundary on 11 occasions. The next best score was Sammy-Jo Johnson (39 from 22).

It was the final warm-up match for England before the Women’s Ashes against Australia begins on Tuesday in Leicester. The series involves three One-Day Internationals, three T20 Internationals and a four-day Test match.

The practice match also started the seven-match tour for Australia A which includes three 50-over matches, two T20s against the England Women's Academy and a three-day tour match against England.

Trenaman made her Rebel Women’s Big Bash League debut last season against the Sydney Sixers at Sydney Showground Stadium.

The leg-spinning allrounder claimed 2-11 from four overs including Ashleigh Gardner for a fourth ball duck.
