Four Nottinghamshire Women’s players have been selected for Kia Super League squads for the tournament that starts in two weeks’ time.
Batter Georgia Boyce, spinner Lucy Higham and all-rounder Sonia Odedra will be part of the 15-strong Loughborough Lightning squad that also includes Australian star Ellyse Perry and England’s Georgia Elwiss.
Left-arm spinner and batsman Jodie Dibble, meanwhile, will figure for the Western Storm, skippered by England captain and ICC Women’s World Cup winner Heather Knight.
The second edition of the Kia Super League will be played from Thursday 10 August through to Saturday 26 August.
India’s Harmanpreet Kaur will become the first Indian international to feature in the tournament after signing for Surrey Stars, while New Zealand seamer Holly Huddleston will line up at Western Storm.
Eight games will be shown live on Sky for the first time, with enhanced coverage from BBC Test Match Special.
The six teams – Lancashire Thunder, Southern Vipers, Surrey Stars and the Yorkshire Diamonds, join the Lightning and Storm – will compete in a round-robin competition at 12 different venues, culminating with a showcase finals day on Friday 1 September at the 1st Central County Ground in Hove.
ECB Director of England Women’s Cricket Clare Connor said: “After the incredible drama and excitement of the ICC Women's World Cup, we're all set for the second year of the Kia Super League to be the next stage of a transformational summer for women’s cricket in this country.
“Attendances at last year's KSL surpassed our expectations and the standard of cricket was extremely high. I'm sure we'll see even larger crowds and yet more stunning performances when the competition gets underway.
“We’ve continued to attract high profile international players to bolster the quality and intensity of the competition and I know everyone will be excited to see world class stars like Harmanpreet Kaur and Ellyse Perry in action.”
