Laura Marsh to replace Danielle Hazell in England’s ICC Women’s World Twenty20 squad. Yorkshire off-spinner Danielle Hazell has been ruled out of the remainder of England’s ICC Women’s World Twenty20 campaign, after straining her left calf muscle during the team’s training session in Dharamsala on Monday (21st March).
Hazell, who featured in England’s 36-run win against Bangladesh in their opening match of the tournament, will return to the UK to start a rehabilitation programme.
England Women’s Head Coach, Mark Robinson, said: “This is obviously very disappointing news for Danielle. She was an important component of the bowling attack, especially given her excellent current form and the conditions here in India, but we are fortunate to have such a talented and experienced replacement in Laura Marsh. We are looking forward to welcoming Laura into the squad later in the week.”
Marsh will join up with the squad in Chennai, in time for England’s fourth and final ICC Women’s World Twenty20 group match against Pakistan at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday 27th March.
