Australia have an eye on pace to stay ahead of the pack as Tayla Vlaeminck returns


Tayla Vlaeminck is back from injury and the uncapped Darcie Brown is generating plenty of excitement

Rachael Haynes believes Australia’s deepening stock of fast bowlers will provide a “point of difference” for the side as they build towards a 2021-22 schedule that has plenty of big prizes up for grabs.

Tayla Vlaeminck is back in the squad for the tour of New Zealand, for the first time since being ruled out of the T20 World Cup more than a year ago, and is joined by the uncapped Darcie Brown whose potential is creating much excitement in the game after a season where she has impressed in the WBBL and WNCL.

Belinda Vakarewa, who has one ODI cap from the 2017 World Cup, is also part of the squad and the injured Annabel Sutherland is tipped to push the speed gun further. Hannah Darlington, the other new name on the New Zealand tour, has been selected on the back of her death-bowling skillset in t20 while Taneale Peschel and Stella Campbell are among others whose progress will be watched closely.
