NEWS: Emma Lamb Called Up To England Squad

Lancashire’s Emma Lamb has been added to the England squad which will tour Sri Lanka this month, following a successful training camp in Abu Dhabi.

Coach Mark Robinson said that Lamb had impressed in the two internal warm-up games played in Abu Dhabi, as well as during the Kia Super League, when she was the only non-international player to feature among the top ten group-stage run scorers.

Though she opens for Lancashire and Lancashire Thunder, it is likely that if she makes her debut during this series – which begins with the first ODI tomorrow – Lamb will come in down the order, having batted at number 6 in the Abu Dhabi matches.

Her international call-up follows a successful Academy tour earlier this year to Sri Lanka, when she made 85 off 80 balls in a one-day game versus Sri Lanka A and 45 off 29 balls in a T20 against Australia’s Shooting Stars.

  1. Great news, we had to try some new batters at some stage! Is there any way we can follow the series other than on a live scorecard etc?


  2. Shrubsole and Ecclestone unavailable and we select a batsman – message perhaps in there about where Robinson’s concerns lie.
