Women to play at Lord’s

Via the BBC.

The England women’s team will play a rare match at Lord’s when they take on India in a one-day match next year.

It is the first match at Lord’s in five years for the England team while India will play there for the first time.

“To play at Lord’s is every cricketer’s dream,” said England’s Caroline Atkins. “We are delighted,” said women’s cricket supremo Gill McConway.

“It has been India’s dream to play at the home of cricket and I feel the timing has never been better.”

Last month, MCC president Robin Marlar sparked controversy in the women’s game days after succeeding Tom Graveney.

Marlar told The Telegraph it was “absolutely outrageous” women were allowed to play mixed cricket in case they got injured. (see reaction to this here)
