Cricketer Sophie Luff has been selected by England to tour Sri Lanka.

LYMPSHAM’S Sophie Luff has been selected for a two-week tour of Sri Lanka with the England Academy squad.

This was a reward for a successful England Under-19 South Africa tour last autumn, when Sophie finished as the leading run scorer. The 20-year-old, plays her club cricket for Bath and is the Somerset vice-captain.

The 14-strong squad will head to Colombo next week to contest four T20s and two 50-over fixtures against Sri Lanka women.
