NEWS: Lanning Out Of Super League

Australian captain Meg Lanning will play no part in this summer’s Kia Super League, after being ruled out with a shoulder injury.

Lanning was crucial to the hopes of the Surrey Stars, who yesterday suffered two huge defeats in a warm-up double-header against Loughborough Lightning, with the Lightning posting over 200 in the second match, thanks to 91 from Georgia Elwiss, and the Stars well behind the D/L rate when the rain came down to bring proceedings to a close.

The Stars will be permitted to replace Lanning, and an announcement on that is expected shortly.

  1. WSL 1 is not all about the poster girls (Lanning, Taylor) I guess but their presence would help to set the standard for seasons to come.

    On the plus side this gives someone else an opportunity in the WSL. I think in one of my earlier posts I suggested that depth of squads would be tested and require more talent in the women’s game particularly in the expanded WSL II.


  2. Mandhana is one of the best young International Players I have seen in the past couple of years and plays with a very straight bat.


  3. According to what I saw Elwiss got 91 not 99.

    Anyway, missing Lanning is massive loss for the Rey and they have other injury problems too. They’d need to replace Lanning with another player of note to try and drag things back, after a less than ideal lead up to the start of the competition.

    Things looking good for Lightning though.
