Meg Lanning, the captain of Australia, will not play in the women's Ashes cricket series in England

Meg Lanning, the captain of Australia, has been forced to withdraw from the women's Ashes cricket series in England due to health issues.
In a statement released on Saturday, Cricket Australia said that Lanning was taken out of the team based on medical advice due to a problem that has to be handled at home. No other information has been made public.
Shawn Flegler, Australia's director of women's cricket performance, stated, “It's an unfortunate setback for Meg and she's obviously disappointed to have been ruled out of the Ashes.” She will be missed since it's a big series for the squad, but she recognizes the importance of prioritizing her health.
Meg will continue to recover at home while collaborating with the medical team in an effort to resume playing as soon as feasible.
The 31-year-old Lanning, who was injured in her shoulder and missed the 2017–18 Ashes series, has been instrumental in Australia's dominance in women's international cricket for the last five years.
After taking a four-month hiatus, she returned to cricket in January and guided Australia in its championship defense at the Twenty20 World Cup in March. She also participated in India's first T20 Women's Premier League.
Alyssa Healy, a seasoned wicketkeeper-batsman, will captain the Australian squad for the women's Ashes trip.
On June 22, a Test match will kick off the multi-format series in Nottingham. Three T20 matches and three ODIs will follow.
