Rising star Rachel Trenaman will have a new feather in her cap after being selected to take on England.

Trenaman, 16, has been selected as part of the Cricket Australia XI team to play in Brisbane next week.

Two matches are scheduled for Monday and Wednesday.

Both are part of the English team’s warm-up for the Ashes matches throughout the summer.

It comes just after Trenaman and Ellie Dalgarno-Fixter were named in the ACT/ NSW Country under 18 team for the national championships.

The two Wagga girls will start the titles in Canberra later this month.

Trenaman, who is with the NSW Breakers, was named captain of the side.
