Darcie Brown, who is injured, is replaced by Grace Harris for the Bangladesh ODIs.

Australia’s cricket board confirmed on Friday (March 15) that Grace Harris will take Darcie Brown’s position for the ODI part of the team’s upcoming trip to Bangladesh. Brown’s left foot suffered a navicular stress injury, which prevented her from playing in the series. We will find out when she will recuperate and be able to return.

Harris will now need to depart sooner in order to join the rest of the team, given he was initially only selected for the T20I portion of the tour. Her WPL duty came to an end as her squad, UP Warriorz, was unable to advance past the league stage.

One significant absence from the already announced ODI squad is Jess Jonassen, who was left off of the roster. Tayla Vlaeminck, a fast bowler, will make her much anticipated comeback after missing time due to injury. Heather Graham, an all-rounder, was first added to the tour’s standby list. She is currently ill and won’t be traveling.

Three ODIs and three T20Is are scheduled for the teams when the series begins on March 21. In preparation for the September T20 World Cup, which will take place in Bangladesh, this will be Australia’s first bilateral series there.

The updated squad is: Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Annabel Sutherland, Georgia Wareham, Tayla Vlaeminck, Phoebe Litchfield, Tahlia McGrath, Sophie Molineux, Alana King, Phoebe Litchfield, Tahlia McGrath, Sophie Molineux, Beth Mooney, and Ash Gardner.
