Storm trio named in England IT20 squad

Heather Knight, Anya Shrubsole and Fran Wilson have all been included in the England squad for the upcoming Vitality IT20 series against the West Indies.

The squad also sees the return of England regulars Katherine Brunt and Nat Sciver, who were rested for the recent Royal London ODI series.

England’s clean-sweep in the ODIs means they’ve now won 13 all-format matches in a row, a run they’ll be keen to continue in the Vitality IT20 series, as captain Heather Knight explains.

“It’s great to set records and break new ground,” she said “It’s something we talked about as a team when Robbo came in.

“What’s great is that a winning run requires a lot of hard work and a lot of ruthlessness. It won’t continue if we become complacent or begin to let our own standards slip.

“We’ve got three games against the West Indies, and three chances to further improve our T20 form. If we can be at our best across these matches that will set us up well for the Ashes.”

The squad in full is:

Heather Knight (captain)

Tammy Beaumont

Katherine Brunt

Kate Cross

Sophie Ecclestone

Jenny Gunn

Amy Jones

Laura Marsh

Nat Sciver

Anya Shrubsole

Linsey Smith

Sarah Taylor
