Sullivan earns WHITE FERNS call up

MAGICIANS seamer Gabby Sullivan will link up with the WHITE FERNS ODI squad as a replacement for Lea Tahuhu who unfortunately will miss the remainder of the ODI Series against England after suffering a hamstring injury last night at Hagley Oval.

She will have an MRI scan this week to determine the full extent of the injury.

WHITE FERNS Head Coach Bob Carter said injuries are part and parcel of professional sport.

“It’s unfortunate news for Lea and a big loss for the team,” said Carter.

“We wish her the best of luck with her recovery and know she’ll be doing everything to get back on the park as soon as possible.

“The flipside of this is a great opportunity for Gabby who’s been impressive for Canterbury and deserves the call up.”

The WHITE FERNS arrived in Dunedin today ahead of the second ODI against England on Friday at University of Otago Oval.
