The squad was selected following the Lanning versus Perry Series and the Under-19 National Championships last year, aiming to provide players with valuable experience in preparation for the 2025 ICC Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup in Malaysia.

Sonya Thompson, Head of National Development at Cricket Australia, stated,

“The tri-series in Sri Lanka gives our under-19 squad a great development opportunity as part of our preparation for the T20 World Cup next year.”

She added, “The T20 matches will provide the squad with a great development opportunity ahead of the Under-19 T20 World Cup and we’re also excited about the 50-over matches.”

Thompson also mentioned,

“We are also looking to give players a chance to develop their leadership skills across the series.”
