Meg Lanning returned to cricket in January after a six-month mental health break. Now She has been withdrawn from the squad due to a medical issue that requires management from home. Australia are looking to retain the multi-format Ashes. They will take on England in a one-off Test in Nottingham from June 22-26 at Trent Bridge. Then they will play three T20 matches and three one-day internationals, and wrap up the tour on July 18.

The Ashes

The women’s cricket performance boss of Cricket Australia, Shawn Flegler said: “It’s an unfortunate setback for Meg and she’s obviously disappointed to have been ruled out of the Ashes. It is a significant series for the team. She’ll be missed, but she understands the need to put her health first.”

“Meg will remain at home where she will continue to work with medical staff with the aim to return to playing as soon as possible. We ask that Meg’s privacy is respected at this time.”

Wicketkeeper-batter Alyssa Healy will captain the team throughout the Ashes against England with all-rounder Tahlia McGrath as vice-captain. Lanning will not be replaced in the squad due to the Australia A tour in the UK, with players readily available to come in for the Ashes if needed.
