England Women’s Squad to face Australia and New Zealand

Somerset all-rounder, Stephanie Davies gets her first full international call-up, while Sussex spinner Rosalie Birch has been recalled following a year’s absence. Fellow Sussex spin colleagues Holly Colvin and Charlie Russell will share the front line spinner duties with Colvin playing on the Australia leg and Russell taking the reigns for New Zealand.

 

Yorkshire’s Katherine Brunt remains unavailable for selection through the injury sustained to her back in February 2007. Fellow pace-bowler Lynsey Askew is also unavailable due to an injury to her finger.

 

Charlotte Edwards will lead the fifteen-strong squad as they contest the Ashes as well as a Twenty20 and an ODI series against Australia followed by a whirlwind tour of New Zealand comprising five ODIs in eight days.

 

Edwards said: “This squad is a great blend of youth and experience with nine from the victorious 2005 Ashes team travelling to Australia. This demonstrates continuity in selection, which is excellent preparation as we look ahead to the World Cup in 2009. It’s going to be a tough tour this winter, but we definitely have the talent to challenge both Australia and New Zealand. “

 

Dobson added:” Steph Davies will be a great asset to the squad. She has been performing consistently in the LV County Championships and Super 4s for the past few seasons as well as for the England Development side. She offers us additional depth in our batting and bowling departments and it’ll be a great opportunity for her to show what she can do at the next level.

 

“Rosalie has put in a lot of hours to improve her action and her batting and we’re happy with the development. She’s great to have in the squad and we’re all confident she’ll have a good tour.”
