Alana King awarded CA contract
West Aussie Alana King has been rewarded for her performances earning a contract on Cricket Australia's women's list.
King is the only West Aussie in the squad earning your place with exceptional performances in the Ashes and recent Women's World Cup.
CA's Head of Performance Women's Cricket and National Selector Shawn Fegler said it has been an incredible 12-months for the Australian Women's Team highlighted by the 50-over World Cup triumph.
“Alana King came into the side during the Ashes and hasn’t missed a beat, she produced match-winning performances across all three formats and thoroughly deserves her spot on the list. After the loss of Georgia Wareham to injury, we were in a fortunate position to be able to replace her with another outstanding leg spinner in Alana. It’s a real credit to Alana and the Australian Cricket system to have someone of her calibre waiting in the wings ready to go."
Sophie Molineux has been omitted from the contract list.
