MELBOURNE: Grace Harris, Kim Garth, Heather Graham and Phoebe Litchfield were on Wednesday added to Cricket Australia’s list of women’s players to be offered national contracts for 2023-24 including 13 players retained from last season.
The quartet became the beneficiaries of the additional national deals made available under cricket’s new Memorandum of Understanding.
The total number of women’s contracts available has risen from 15 to 18 under Cricket Australia’s new Memorandum of Understanding with the players, with Carey declining one of the 18 spots.
Harris has been offered a contract after earning an upgrade during the 2022 Commonwealth Games and being a regular in the white-ball teams since then. The all-rounder played all six matches including the final for the dominant Australia outfit at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup earlier this year. IANS
