England Announces Women’s Test Squad for one-off Test against India

England has announced the 17-player squad for next weeks’ one-off Test against India which will be held in Bristol from June 16. It will be India’s first Test after 7 years. Central Sparks seamer Emily Arlott has received her maiden international call-up who claimed a hat-trick in domestic season this year. Heather Knight will lead the side who recently led England in a one-off Ashes Test. India and England have met in Test in August 2014 when India emerged winner by 6 wickets. England will also play 3 ODIs and 3 T20Is this summer against India, followed by the Hundred tournament. 

Head Coach of England, Lisa Keightley said: “It’s been hard to pick a squad given the balance of needing cover in a COVID world while wanting to give players as much chance as possible to play cricket. We want players to have opportunities out in the middle so we’re looking to reduce our numbers slightly ahead of the Test to give the non-selected players that chance. I’m really excited by the summer ahead. We’ve been working really hard across the last 10 weeks, India are a strong side and it’s the beginning of a two-year journey for us that takes in two ICC World Cups, an Ashes, and the Commonwealth Games.” 

Here’s the squad of England women: 

Heather Knight (Western Storm, C) Emily Arlott (Central Sparks), Tammy Beaumont (Lightning), Katherine Brunt (Northern Diamonds), Kate Cross (Thunder), Freya Davies (South East Stars), Sophia Dunkley (South East Stars), Sophie Ecclestone (Thunder), Georgia Elwiss (Southern Vipers), Tash Farrant (South East Stars), Sarah Glenn (Central Sparks), Amy Jones (Central Sparks), Nat Sciver (Northern Diamonds), Anya Shrubsole (Western Storm), Mady Villiers (Sunrisers), Fran Wilson (Sunrisers), Lauren Winfield-Hill (Northern Diamonds)
