Watch: Inside MCC Women's US & Canada Tour

The Lord’s YouTube Channel has released a video from the recent MCC Women’s tour to the USA and Canada.

The piece includes contributions from former England captains Claire Taylor and Charlotte Edwards, both of whom were part of the MCC squad.

Canada captain Durriya Shabbir also features in the video, discussing the impact of an MCC tour on women’s cricket in Canada.

MCC played seven matches on the September tour in Evansburg, Toronto and Ontario, winning all their games. The trip was the Club’s inaugural women’s tour to the USA and Canada.

Claire Taylor, MCC captain for the trip, said: “The role that MCC plays in developing women’s cricket both at home and abroad is very important.

"For women cricketers in countries like the US and Canada where cricket is not a primary sport, facilities can be hard to come by and the girls could be miles and miles from each other.

"As a result, MCC tours like this are crucial to helping them develop.”
