Gunn prepares to defend Ashes
All-rounder Jenny Gunn heads a strong contingent of Notts women going Down Under to defend the Ashes.
The 21-year-old is joined by Notts team-mates Jane Smit and Nicola Shaw on the tour of Australia and New Zealand.
England Women are the current holders of the Ashes after winning the series in 2005 and must draw their only Test of the tour to retain the trophy. The four-day match, which will be played at The Bradman Oval, starts on February 15.
As well as the Ashes, the team will play a five-match ODI series and a Twenty20 game before heading to New Zealand for a further five-match ODI series.
Gunn was the first woman to join the Notts Academy and made such progress under the tutelage of Chris Tolley that she made her debut for England at the age of 17.
