Congratulations to Mady Villiers, who has today been named in an ECB Development XI to face Pakistan Women.

The ECB Development XI to take on Pakistan Women in Leicester on Thursday (9 May) has been confirmed.

Northern Diamonds’ Hollie Armitage captains the group while England Women Performance Pace Bowling Coach Chris Liddle will lead the team as head coach.


Senior quartet Lauren Filer, Bess Heath, Linsey Smith and Danielle Wyatt who have all been selected in England Women’s IT20 squad to face Pakistan are named, alongside regional contracted players to form a strong playing XI.

The match takes place at Uptonsteel County Ground, Leicestershire CCC on Thursday 9 May, with play starting at 11am.

Supporters can buy tickets here, and also from the ticket office at the Curzon Road entrance on matchday.

England Women Head of Performance Pathways Richard Bedbrook said: “The ECB Development XI match opportunities provide us with real flexibility in an approach to selection.

“On this occasion, this T20 fixture is the only one of the summer against an International opposition outside of the various England Women bilateral series’ and therefore providing opportunities to a particularly strong playing XI is important as we continue to build with the bigger picture of the T20 World Cup in mind.”
