T20 World Cup: Scotland women can ‘go from strength to strength’



Skipper Bryce’s sister Sarah was playing her fifth T20 World Cup qualifier, having first represented Scotland aged 15, and says finally getting over the line is something she has dreamed of her whole life.

“I’m absolutely buzzing,” Sarah Bryce, now 24, said. “It’s been a dream of mine as long as I can remember.

“I’ve been around for a wee while now, been to these before and come up short. I can’t wait to go to the World Cup.”

Sarah, like her sister, is no stranger to facing the world’s best players. She is contracted to The Blaze on England’s domestic circuit and Welsh Fire in the Hundred, but says doing it for Scotland will be all the more special.

“Every time you put the thistle on it means something more,” she said.

“To get to do that at the highest level, even just thinking about it is ‘wow’.

“It will just mean that little bit more and testing ourselves against the best players in the world is so exciting.”

Sarah insists Scotland are not worried about which teams they play in Bangladesh, in the tournament that runs from 3-20 October, but one particular fixture did spring to mind.

“An England-Scotland game is always exciting and brings out a good rivalry, so it would be amazing to play them,” she added.

“Equally, we couldn’t care less. We’re just buzzing to be at a World Cup and hopefully we can put in some good performances.”
