English international Danni Wyatt to debut for VicSpirit

Commonwealth Bank VicSpirit have included English star Danni Wyatt in its WT20 squad for these week's matches against the Tasmanian Roar.

Wyatt and Kathleen Hempenstall have been brought into the Twenty20 squad at the expense of Kristen Beams and Emily McIntyre.

There has been only one change made to the WNCL side with Hempenstall returning in place of McIntyre.

Wyatt, 20, has played 12 one-day internationals and 19 Twenty20s for England and has a Twenty20 bowling strike-rate of just 10.6.

She is playing with Box Hill in the Essteele Premier Firsts Competition and captured 2-15 from ten overs in her first match last weekend.

VicSpirit coach Cathryn Fitzpatrick said it is great to have a player of international standard in the side.

"She can bat and bowl and will give Emma (Inglis) some more options," Fitzpatrick said.

"She comes from a successful side and is a class player".

After claiming three wins against the Western Fury in the previous round, Fitzpatrick is hoping to continue their form against the winless Tasmanian side.

"We prepare the same against all opposition but hopefully we can maintain the momentum we got from last week," Fitzpatrick said.

"Our win in the final match against the Fury was our best for the season; I'm looking for us to play at that level this weekend."

This weekend's matches at Camberwell Sports Ground;

Friday November 25 3:00pm WT20
Saturday November 26 10.00am WNCL
Sunday November 27 10:00am WT20

Admission is free.
