Natalie Sciver (Rv 2006-11) and Alice Davidson-Richards (W 2007-12) were both selected for England in the one-off Test against South Africa at Taunton in June, hitting maiden hundreds in a sixth-wicket partnership on day two. It was a fabulous debut for Alice, who received her first England Test cap. At the Commonwealth Games, the England team, captained by Nat, was pipped to the Bronze medal by New Zealand.
