Lanning was one of 11 Australians to pull out of the Hundred’s first season in 2021 due to restrictions on international travel and the competition’s proximity to their home series against India. She had previously withdrawn from a planned stint in the Kia Super League due to injury and is one of the few members of the Australia set-up who has never played domestic cricket in England.
Each women’s team will sign an overseas ‘wildcard’ player later in the summer, with a maximum of three overseas players permitted in a single playing XI.
