Alice Capsey and Freya Kemp have earned their first call-ups to England Women’s ODI squad for the Royal London Series against India.

A squad of 15 has been named for the three-match series, which will be England’s first fixtures in the new ICC Women’s Championship cycle, with points leading to qualification for the ICC Women’s World Cup in 2025.

Amy Jones will continue to lead the side in the absence of Heather Knight and Nat Sciver, with Sophie Ecclestone her vice-captain.

England Women’s Head Coach Lisa Keightley said: “I was so proud of how the team came together to win the Vitality IT20 series.

“Sometimes when you’re missing big name players, other players step up and take their chance and I felt we really did that. It’s a young group but they worked tremendously hard and showed their skill and resilience to get over the line.

“Amy did a great job as captain and she was ably supported by Sophie so we want them to carry on what they’ve been doing. It’s another big series, especially with points counting towards ICC Women’s World Cup qualification, and with the summer ending at Lord’s there’s a lot to be excited about.”
