Alana Dalzell named in senior Ireland squad
Bready CC and Dragons all-rounder Alana Dalzell has been called up to the Ireland Women’s senior squad for next month’s series against South Africa in Dublin.
The 21-year old is one of four potential new caps in Ed Joyce’s panel for three ODI’s and three T20 Internationals against the Proteas which get under way on 3 June in Prembroke. Alana has been a major force in Bready’s dominance on the North West Women’s club scene in recent years and captained the team to an All-Ireland final last year as well as the NW League and Cup ‘double’.
She has been part of Irish training squads in the past, as well as her involvement in the Super Series with the Dragons with a big desire to break into the International set-up and everyone within North West cricket will be hoping she gets her chance to shine against South Africa.
The North West and Bready are due to host the world champions Australia in July in a Tri-Series with Ireland and Pakistan and Dalzell will be hoping to impress at her home ground in that series as well. Tickets for the Tri-Series are now on sale here
