WOMEN’S RAPIDS PLAYER GLENN SWITCHES FOCUS TO T20I CRICKET

Worcestershire Women’s Rapids player Sarah Glenn will turn her attention to T20I cricket tomorrow after a successful start to her England career at ODI level.

The leg spinner picked up eight wickets in three matches against Pakistan in Malaysia.

Her efforts helped secure a 2-0 triumph for England with one game abandoned due to rain – a match in which Glenn returned fine figures of 4-18.

It meant England finished second in the ICC Women’s Championship behind Australia with 14 wins from 21 matches and a total of 29 points.

They have also qualified automatically for the 2021 World Cup by finishing in the top four.

But now Glenn and her team-mates will look to continue the same form in three T20Is against Pakistan – also in Malaysia – with the first match taking place tomorrow (Tuesday).

Glenn said: “I was really happy to get four wickets (in the third ODI) but it’s a shame the rain came and the game had to be abandoned.

“I really enjoyed the three matches and it was good to come out with a series win. The girls have been really welcoming and I’m looking forward to the T20s.”

The second T20I is on Thursday and the third 24 hours later.
