A trio of Queensland's most promising female players will tread the biggest cricketing stage of their short but impressive careers when they play at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday.

 

Josie Dooley, Renee Irvine and Courtney Sippel will play in the inaugural Rebel WBBL Under 18 Exhibition match.

 

The match will follow the WBBL clash between the Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes and will showcase the most outstanding performers from the 2017-18 Under 18 National Championships.

 

Sydney Thunder all-rounder Rachel Trenaman and Melbourne Stars wicket-keeper Nicole Faltum are set to headline the Lanning XII, whilst the Perry XII will be looking to in-form fast bowler Annabel Sutherland and the Thunder’s Hannah Darlington to lead from the front.

 

All eight WBBL Under 18 Rookies will also take part, with Zoe Griffiths (Stars), Ashlee King (Scorchers), Erika Quinn (Renegades) and Hayley Silver-Holmes (Thunder) named in the Lanning XII and Emma de Broughe (Strikers), Stella Campbell (Sixers), Josephine Dooley (Heat) and Courtney Webb (Hurricanes) included in the Perry XII.
