Worcestershire Women’s Rapids spinner Sarah Glenn is one of 17 players awarded England Women Central Contracts for 2021-2022.
Glenn has made a massive impact with England since making her full international breakthrough 18 months ago against Pakistan in Kuala Lumpur.
She has taken 27 wickets in 18 WT20Is and 11 wickets in six WODIs.
The 23-year-old has also helped Central Sparks to top the table in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy 50 over competition this summer.
The contracts run from May 1, 2021, to October 31, 2022, to align with the professional contracts at the eight Regional teams.
Jonathan Finch, Director of England Women’s Cricket, said: “We’re pleased to confirm a strong group of Centrally Contracted England Women’s cricketers ahead of a really exciting two years for Lisa, Heather and the team.
“The Central Contracts, along with the roll-out of professional women’s domestic contracts, provide a fantastic opportunity to develop a larger pool of players pushing for selection and help strive for success on the field for England Women.
“We’ve continued to work closely with the England Women’s Player Partnership (EWPP) and the PCA to establish a comprehensive and objective process that underpins the awarding of Central Contracts.
“We will keep working in collaboration for the benefit of the players as we continue to grow and develop the professional women’s game.”
