Australia's under-19 Women's team are heading overseas for their first tour to South Africa in April to take part in a tri-series with South Africa and England.
It is also the first time the side has played in 15 years, having last played in a 2003 series against England.
The tri-series will see Australia play South Africa’s Emerging Women and England Women’s Academy across four 50-over matches and two Twenty20s.
The leadership duties will be split across the formats, with 16-year-old all-rounder Rachael Trenaman named captain of the 50-over side and Saskia Horley will lead the T20 side.
The re-introduction of an under-19 side follows a restructure to the female pathway last year which brought it in line with the male pathway, with an Australia A side, Cricket Australia XI and National Performance Squad replacing the previous under-21 Shooting Stars.
