Hunter and Lyons named for the Australian U19s Tour of Sri Lanka

Hunter and Lyons named for the Australian U19s Tour of Sri Lanka


Just over two weeks after providing drinks for the Australian women's team at Manuka Oval, ACT Meteors youngsters Amy Hunter and Grace Lyons have earned their own Australian colours, with the pair named in the Australian squad for the multi-format Under-19 series in Sri Lanka in late March and early April.

Hunter was named in the Team of the Tournament after the Under-19 Women's National Championships played in Brisbane in December, and says the call-up was unexpected.

“I got the call last Thursday and there were a few tears, I definitely cried,” Hunter said.

Hunter says tears of joy were shared with her parents in North Queensland as they celebrated the next step in her cricket journey since moving to Canberra to play for the Meteors this summer.

It definitely feels like all the hard work I've put in has been worth it, but it also feels like this is the start of hopefully many more.

It is equally exciting to be named alongside Meteors teammate Lyons as the tour squad includes 15 players from all six states and the ACT.

It's great to have Gracie on my team. “I'm really excited to get away with her and experience that together,” Hunter said.

I've never been abroad before so that experience is what I'm looking forward to this year, just like playing cricket in another country. I can not wait.

Hunter and Lyons, both 18, are new faces to the Meteors squad this season and have both played key roles for the team all season.

In her rookie WNCL season, Hunter has had the opportunity to take the new ball at points of the season, most notably the scalp of destructive South African international Lizelle Lee when the Meteors hosted Tasmania.

Lyons, also in her rookie season, has taken on the difficult task of opening up the batting with open arms, making regular starts and posting a top score of 33 for the season. She has also proven to be a safe set of hands behind the stumps with four catches and one stumping for the season.

The Australian Under-19s team will be coached by former Australian cricketer and Cricket Australia National Development Lead Kristen Beams.

Australia will play Sri Lanka and England in a tri-series format, including four T20s, with the first on March 28, before two one-day matches in April.

Australian Women's Under 19 Head Coach Kristen Beams said:

The series in Sri Lanka will give the team an opportunity to play in a multi-format series and challenge them to adapt to different conditions.

The T20 matches provide a great development opportunity for the squad in the build-up to the Under-19 T20 World Cup and we are also excited about the 50-over matches.

We also want to give players the opportunity to develop their leadership skills in the series.
