The pace-bowler was an integral part of the winning ICC World T20 championship team in November, and most recently played in Australia’s 3-0 One Day International series whitewash of New Zealand.

Leg-spinner Amanda-Jade Wellington has not held her position on the 14-player CA contract list but has secured a place in the National Performance Squad, alongside SA allrounder Tahlia McGrath.

“Amanda-Jade Wellington misses out on a contract after losing her spot in the side earlier in the season,” National Selector Shawn Flegler said.

“Amanda-Jade is aware of what she needs to improve to put herself back in contention for selection and her first opportunity is through the NPS Program.”

The NPS will take part in a training camp at the Bupa National Cricket Centre in Brisbane in the coming months, with Head Coach Leah Poulton again leading the highly successful program that saw two players progress to the Australian team last season.

The number one ranked T20I and ODI team in the world, Australia boasts two players ranked number one in the world for their craft, with Megan Schutt the top ranked T20I bowler and Ellyse Perry the leading ODI all-rounder.
