South East Stars’ Ryana Macdonald-Gay has been called up to England Women’s ODI squad for the series against New Zealand.

Heather Knight’s side begin their Metro Bank ODI series against the White Ferns at the Seat Unique Riverside tomorrow lunchtime.

The seamer has taken 33 wickets at an average of just under 20 in List A cricket as well as adding handy lower-order runs. Macdonald-Gay signed to play for Surrey’s new women’s team from the 2025 season after a strong start to the season for the Stars.

The South East Stars seamer represented England Women A in their tour to New Zealand in March and will link up with the squad in Durham later today.

Head coach Jon Lewis said: “Ryana has been a standout bowler in domestic 50-over cricket and had a good 50-over tour of New Zealand with our England A team.

“We have brought her in at this point as we have a couple of niggles in the squad. We have been really impressed with her skill level and accuracy.

“She is an exciting young talent and we look forward to having her in the squad.”
