Danielle Hazell is confident the Yorkshire Diamonds, boosted by three new overseas recruits and two more England players, have the squad to finish the Kia Super League with a bang this summer.

The Diamonds have announced their squad for the fourth and final edition of the KSL, which will be replaced by the Hundred from 2020. This summer’s competition kicks off in early August.

New coach Hazell is one of a host of changes at Emerald Headingley having replaced Paul Grayson, who has taken on the role of men’s batting coach.

The Diamonds have brought in England bowlers Katie George and Linsey Smith and have three new overseas players in Alyssa Healy, Jemimah Rodrigues and Chloe Tryon.

Australian wicketkeeper batsman Healy, one of the world’s best players at present, has played briefly for Yorkshire women before, whilst her husband Mitchell Starc represented the White Rose county in 2012.

Rodrigues, an 18-year-old batting all-rounder, is a rising star of Indian cricket. South Africa all-rounder Tryon has made over 130 international appearances.

Aussie Healy will represent the Diamonds immediately after this summer’s Ashes series, when it is hoped she will come up against team-mates to be Katherine Brunt and Diamonds captain Lauren Winfield.
