England women's squad for series against India

Maiden call-up for Emily Arlott for England's one-off Test against India

England Women's News

England Women have announced a 17-member squad for their one-off Test against India scheduled to be played from 16 June at the County Ground in Bristol.

Nat Sciver has been appointed as Heather Knight's deputy while there was also a maiden Test call-up for seamer Emily Arlott. She has been in sensational form, picking up a five-wicket haul in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.

Other notable call-ups include left-arm pacer Tash Farrant and batting all-rounder Sophia Dunkley who recently earned her maiden central contract. England will likely trim down the squad ahead of the scheduled Test match in order to release players for the next round of the RHF Trophy.

On the selections, England head coach 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."

Keightley was also excited with the prospect of a busy schedule of cricket ahead, adding, "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."

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