Thunder name squad for Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy opener
A squad of 13 has been selected for Thunder's opening two trophy fixtures
Head Coach Paul Shaw has named a 13-strong squad for Thunder's opening two North Group matches in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy this Bank Holiday Weekend.
Thunder take on Lightning tomorrow at Trent Bridge, before travelling to Edgbaston to face Central Sparks on Monday - that fixture was scheduled to be a home game for Thunder but was switched due to Emirates Old Trafford and Liverpool Cricket Club being unavailable.
Alex Hartley will captain the North West side during the tournament - while Kate Cross, Sophie Ecclestone and Emma Lamb are all included after being released from the England 'bubble' for the opening two rounds of matches.
The games are being held behind-closed-doors, however a live stream will be available to watch the action which gets underway at 10.30am.
