Former Pembroke and Ireland Women all-rounder Kim Garth has been named in the Australian squad for their tour of India next month.

The 26 year-old won 114 caps for Ireland between 2010 and 2019, after making her debut as a 14 year-old against New Zealand.

She scored five half centuries in her tally of 1679 runs at 23.99, with her highest score of 98 coming against Thailand in 2017.

With the ball she claimed 93 wickets at 21.35, with her best-bowling effort of 4 for 8 coming against Scotland in 2014.

Her last game for Ireland was in the T20 WCQ tournament in Scotland in 2019, where Ireland missed out on qualifying slots to Bangladesh and Thailand.

Garth emigrated to Australia gaining full-time contracts, and winning a Big Bash medal twice.

Her impressive displays Down Under have earned her a call up for the five-match T20I series in India, now that she has completed a three-year stand-out period from the date of her last international with Ireland.

While it's a bitter blow for Ireland, it's a great achievement for the Dubliner who has never shirked a challenge throughout her career.
