Holly Ferling & Sarah Aley join Macquarie Sports Radio Cricket
The first ball of Commonwealth Bank Women’s International series will be delivered on Macquarie Sports Radio this Saturday night when Australia take on New Zealand in the first of three T20s.
Two key additions to the commentary line-up are Sarah Aley and Holly Ferling, both current day players who will feature right throughout the summer. Aley and Ferling will be joined by a host of other stars on Macquarie Sports Radio, which includes Alex Blackwell, Julia Price, Kristen Beams and current Australian player, Elyse Villani.
It will be the most extensive coverage on commercial radio with cricket set to play an important role in the evolution of Macquarie Sports Radio as a place for sports fans right across the country.
The coverage begins at North Sydney Oval this weekend, showcasing the fierce rivalry between Australia and New Zealand. Macquarie Sports Radio will bring listeners every ball of the three T20s, starting on Saturday night and continuing on Monday, October 1 and Friday, October 5.
Sarah Aley said: “I can’t wait for it all to start – and to be up in the commentary box for Macquarie Sports Radio is going to be a thrill.”
Holly Ferling said: “The international and domestic season for the women has never been bigger with T20Is against New Zealand, a T20 World Cup in the West Indies all before the WBBL kicks off in December. The professionalism of the sport is continuing to increase, which means more female cricketers are finding a way to gain an edge and take the game to the next level. I’ve been part of the Macquarie Sports Radio team since April and to now be involved with the commentary team, I’m beyond excited.”
Aley, an Australian representative, has been a big part of the success in New South Wales while Ferling is quickly establishing herself as someone to watch over the next decade and was a big signing with the Melbourne Stars.
Macquarie Media CEO Adam Lang said; “We are thrilled that Sarah and Holly are part of Macquarie Sports Radio’s summer of cricket coverage. The growth in influence that women are having on the game of cricket right throughout Australia is spectacular. We are also pleased that our coverage will begin with Australia taking on New Zealand. This is just the beginning and we’ll have many more exciting announcements ahead.”
