Women’s Head Coach, Richard Waite, said, “I am extremely excited for Mariko to be invited to take part in this match. Not only is she supporting an initiative that she believes in but to have the opportunity to play alongside some of the best International Women’s Cricketers in the world, is an opportunity that doesn’t come round every day.”
