The national women's selectors have named a squad of 14 for the TelstraClear White Ferns tour to the Netherlands, Ireland and England. State Central Districts Hinds wicket-keeping all-rounder, Sara McGlashan, is one of two new caps named in the touring squad. The other is State Canterbury Magicians all-rounder Fiona Fraser."It's great to be named in the side. I feel like my game has really come on this year, particularly since I've been at the academy and I'm hoping to play a positive role throughout the tour," says McGlashan. McGlashan, along with Louise Milliken and Nicola Browne are all members of this year's New Zealand Cricket Academy who are based full-time at Lincoln University.

Experienced State Central Districts Hinds all-rounder, Kate Pulford, has also been recalled to the side after last playing for the team in February 2000. State Canterbury Magicians all-rounder Haidee Tiffen is currently playing in the UK and will join the side in the Netherlands when it arrives on June 21. The squad will have one more camp together from May 17-19 at the New Zealand Cricket High Performance Centre at Lincoln University before it departs from Auckland on June 21. The team will play three One-day Internationals in the Netherlands, three in Ireland and five in England where it will compete in a tri-series with England and India.
