“Everyone knows I’m not the most serious member of the team but it’s a real privilege and honour to be given the opportunity to be vice-captain this season,” she said.
Head coach Jess Thirlby added: “Asha and Serena will make a great partnership but we’re lucky enough to have a team of leaders on court.
“We’ve been training hard and we’re raring to go on Thursday night.”
