Laura Delany on joining Lancashire
“I’m delighted to have been asked to join the Thunder. I’m just keen to get going – which will start with a practice match today. The Thunder squad is full of talented players – many have played in The Hundred recently or in an English squad before – so it will be great to play alongside them, but also under the quality coaching staff we have at the club. I’m looking forward to the challenge over the next few weeks and being part of this high-profile competition.”. Laura Delany said
Regional Director of Women’s Cricket, David Thorley, said
“Firstly, on behalf of everybody connected to Thunder, I would like to thank Deandra for her efforts this summer. Her experience has helped us greatly both on and off the field. We wish her well in the CPL back home.
“Once we realised that we would be without Deandra for the final four 50 over matches of the season,. We felt it was important to replace her experience and run scoring ability in the middle order and we feel that Laura fits the bill perfectly.
David Thorley further said on Laura Delany that
After captaining her country for over seven years and making almost 150 appearances on the international stage, Laura will bring vital experience to our squad and we hope that her contributions on the field will help us to finish the season strongly.”
