Congrats to Nat and the Surrey Stars

England Academy Selection for Alex Travers

First Bob Willis, then Nat Sciver. Could Alex Travers be the next Stoker to graduate to full England honours?

Well, she’s taken the first step by securing selection to the England Women’s Academy, (formerly the EWDP U19s.)

Proud Mum Pernille T contacted Pagie yesterday to say : “Thought I’d better let you know, hopefully before social media whispers reach you! She is currently out of reach of Twitter, Snapchat and such things, but she does know of her selection herself – we’ve known for a little while but were not allowed to tell until the ECB announced the squads officially!” Read more

Surrey Women 1st XI full of Stoke and Stoke Molesey Players

Lots of Stoke and Stoke Molesey Connections in the Surrey Women’s side last weekend; Nat, Alex, Sophie and Eva all playing. Here it the commentary from the Surrey CCC web-site. We have also found the scorecards on Play Cricket: Surrey Women endured a disappointing weekend, losing to both Warwickshire and Kent in their back to back Royal London One Day Cup matches. Sunday saw them host Warwickshire at their regular home base of Reed’s School in Cobham, with skipper Cecily Scutt losing the toss and being asked to bat first by her opposite number – but not before celebrating the debut of Rhianna Southby, a young Surrey player who has come up through the club’s youth development system. Once again the Surrey innings was led strongly by the in-form Kirstie White, (45), who struggled for support early on when Libby Walters, (9), Eva Gray (1) and Nat Sciver, (run out for 0), all came and went cheaply to leave the side in early trouble on 24-3. The lower middle order fared a little better though with Hannah Jones, (17), Bryony Smith, (20), and Alex Travers, (18), all making good starts before White was the sixth wicket to fall with the score on 128. Although Amy Jenkins, (11), provided some late impetus, Surrey’s last three wickets fell cheaply – with Jenkins last out in the 27th over, leaving Warwickshire 145 to chase for the win. Whilst Jenkins backed up her batting with the early wicket of Sian Jones, (1), the resulting chase was relatively straightforward for the visitors. Captain Marie Kelly, (33), and opener Minahil Zahoor, (28), led the way as they withstood a late clatter of wickets to Sciver to complete the win with nearly ten overs to spare. Scorecard : http://surreywomen.play-cricket.com/website/results/2613681 The following day saw Surrey make the short trip to Beckenham to take on a strong Kent outfit that boasted a number of England players – including recently deposed captain Charlotte Edwards – in their ranks. Again finding themselves batting first, Kirstie White, (31), and Libby Walters, (27), added 62 for the first wicket – but after that only Nat Sciver, (34), was able to reach double figures as Surrey struggled to build partnerships and ended in a similar position to the previous day, 142 all out after 45.4 overs. The Kent response was a controlled and clinical chase with opener Tammy Beaumont – soon to become a Surrey Star in the Kia Super League – leading the way with a quick fire 53 and her England colleague Lydia Greenway, (30), helping her put on 57 for the second wicket. Kent eventually crossed the finish line in the 35th over, despite some excellent bowling from Hannah Jones who led the Surrey figures with 4-31 from her nine overs.

Nat Bags Five as Surrey Women Win

It’s raining five-fors at the moment; Mills & Tarrant for the 1s, and Hasaan from the colts. Add Nat Sciver to the list.

Whilst the spotlight is on the England side, and Surrey CCC men are also bigging up their latest LV win, it has currently gone unreported on Surrey CCC’s site that the Surrey Women beat Lancashire on Sunday; Nat taking 5 for 27 to help dismiss Lancashire for just 78; and she then hit 28 of the required runs in the six wicket win.
