With just 5 days to go until the start of the summer internationals, England have named a 14-player squad for the first two ODIs against South Africa.
Lauren Winfield has been recalled after missing out on the ODI and T20 series’ in India, while Alex Hartley and Fran Wilson have both been omitted. Katherine Brunt and Sarah Taylor both return to the squad after being rested for the India tour.
Interestingly, the ECB’s press release indicates that this squad is only for the first two ODIs of the summer, leaving Mark Robinson’s options open for the third ODI against South Africa and the ensuing T20 tri-series.
The full squad is as follows:
- Heather Knight (captain, Berkshire)
- Tammy Beaumont (Kent)
- Katherine Brunt (Yorkshire)
- Sophie Ecclestone (Lancashire)
- Georgia Elwiss (Sussex)
- Jenny Gunn (Warwickshire)
- Danielle Hazell (Yorkshire)
- Amy Jones (wicketkeeper, Warwickshire)
- Laura Marsh (Kent)
- Anya Shrubsole (Somerset)
- Nat Sciver (Surrey)
- Sarah Taylor (wicketkeeper, Sussex)
- Lauren Winfield (Yorkshire)
- Danni Wyatt (Sussex)
