England Women have announced a squad of 14 players for the Vitality IT20 series against India, which gets underway in Durham on Saturday September 10.

There are two changes from the group which participated in the Commonwealth Games. Heather Knight continues her recovery from a hip injury, and England’s leading IT20 wicket-taker Katherine Brunt will miss the series to prioritise her rest and recovery.

Brunt is replaced in the squad by Lauren Bell, who earns her first IT20 call-up.

England Women Head Coach Lisa Keightley, who will be taking charge of her last series before returning home to Australia, said: “I’m excited about finishing my time with this team with a really exciting series against India. They’re a great side and we’ll have to be at our best to win.

“After discussions with Katherine she felt the best thing for her was to rest across both the T20 and ODI series. We fully support that decision with a view to maximising her mental and physical recovery off the back of what has been an intense year so far.

“That provides an opportunity for Lauren Bell, who was impressive in The Hundred, and with her, Alice Capsey, Freya Kemp and Issy Wong in the squad we’re starting to see a group of exciting young players who have the chance to cement their place in the England team.”
