England Women’s cricket team announce ODI squad against India

In the latest cricket news, England Women on Tuesday announced a 16-player squad for the Royal London Series against India.

Sophia Dunkley is named in the squad and could make her ODI debut when the series commences at Bristol on Sunday June 27.

Freya Davies and Sarah Glenn, who went back to their regional sides during the Test match, are back in the squad.

Heather Knight (captain) Emily Arlott, Tammy Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Kate Cross, Freya Davies, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Tash Farrant, Sarah Glenn, Amy Jones, Nat Sciver (vice captain), Anya Shrubsole, Mady Villiers, Fran Wilson, Lauren Winfield-Hill.

Head Coach Lisa Keightley said: "We're looking forward to playing ODI cricket again after a hugely enjoyable and hard-fought Test match.

"The competition for places across all formats is growing every time we meet to select a squad. The options available to us are the strongest we've had since I’ve been in the role and we feel this group gives us a great opportunity for success in the ODI element of the series.

"There's no space on this occasion for Danni Wyatt and Georgia Elwiss, and while I know they're both disappointed to miss out, it's important that they're given the opportunity to play cricket at a regional level ahead of the Vitality IT20 series.

"We have to balance the needs of the squad and the need of the individual and we'll always be keen to get people playing competitive cricket where we can."
