Third year Microbiology student, Jennifer Gray, Zoology PhD student, Rebecca Rolfe and Trinity graduate, Cecelia Joyce, are representing Ireland in the Irish Women’s Cricket Squad currently competing at the ICC Cricket World Cup Twenty20 Finals in Bangladesh.
Jennifer represented the Irish Senior Squad in Qatar earlier this year. She represented Leinster and Ireland at Under 17 level as well as the Ireland A Ladies in 2011/12 and the Irish Senior Development Squad in early 2013.
Rebecca Rolfe is representing Ireland following a decision by the ICC to increase the official playing squad for the ICC World Twenty20 2014from 14 to 15. The 27 year old batter plays her club cricket for Leinster Cricket Club.
Cecelia, one of Ireland’s most consistent performers, has been capped 44 times for the Irish Ladies Senior Squad. Cecelia made her Irish debut at the age of 17 in College Park and went on to represent DUWCC while studying here, receiving a Pink in 2006.
The Irish Team has one warm up match left against India on March 21 before starting their campaign against New Zealand on March 25. They lost the first warm up match to Ski Lanka. During the tournament the women’s team will also face Australia, South Africa and Pakistan.
