While in school we had a girl on the team. Though admittedly she was probably the best athlete I've ever seen.
Is her Cricinfo page accurate about how many stumpings she has? Seems absurd that she has double the T20 stumpings as she does catches.
I'd be really interested to see how this works out. Sussex are reportedly trying to dampen expectations though, so we will have to wait and see.
Fast bowlers might be averse to bowling bouncers at her.
Might get some good advice from Prior if the seconds mix with firsts for training. Not the best avenue for advice on keeping, but a decent option nonetheless.
James Taylor in line to play some 2nd XI cricket too iirc

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Well Elysse Perry played Sydney First Grade last year IIRC, which is stronger than the vast majority of club comps around, and acquitted herself pretty well, from memory.

Yeah and Karen Rolton once smashed Port Adelaide C's around (and got some press) but played no higher.
There should be nothing stopping women cricketers from trying to play men's cricket and I doubt there is any more but I'd be surprised if any of them made even a regular spot in 1sts their own. If one came along who did, that'd be great but I can't see it at this stage.
