England Women’s Squad Announced


 

Anya Shrubsole is the only uncapped player in the 15-player squad announced by the England women’s selectors for the forthcoming programme against the West Indies as well as two NatWest Women’s Series against South Africa and India.

 

The squad, captained by Charlotte Edwards contains twelve members from the victorious touring party that retained the Ashes in Australia earlier this year. Ebony Rainford-Brent and Lynsey Askew have been recalled to the international set-up after missing out over the winter.

 

Shrubsole, 16, is a genuine all-rounder; a right-arm medium-fast bowler and right hand bat, who plays her county cricket for Somerset and her club cricket for Bath CC.

 

Mark Lane, England’s head coach commented: “It was very difficult to select the squad for this summer’s series’ given the talent that we have in England at the moment and the very successful winter tour we’ve just had.

 

“We have made a few changes to that squad bringing in the very exciting talent of Ebony Rainford-Brent and Anya as well as the ever-reliable Lynsey Askew.

 

“Some fantastic performances in the Super 4s with key players scoring big runs demonstrates that we’re progressing and moving forward to our ultimate goal of the ICC Women’s World Cup in Australia in 2009.”

 

Edwards added: “This squad is a really nice mixture of youth and experience and with everyone in the squad in good form we’re all looking forward to this week’s ODIs against the West Indies. We’ll be building on the momentum of the winter and take that with us into these series.

 

“The West Indies are an unknown quantity to us, but we definitely won’t underestimate them. South Africa and India will provide tough opponents later on in the summer, but we’re prepared and excited for that challenge and know that both series’ are key preparation for next year’s ICC Women’s World Cup in March and the inaugural ICC Women’s World Twenty20 in England in June.”
