SOPHIA DUNKLEY NAMED IN ENGLAND WOMEN'S WORLD T20 SQUAD

England have named their squad of 15 for the Women's World T20 with three uncapped players picked for the first time.

Middlesex batting all-rounder Sophia Dunkley receives her first call up to a full England squad, whilst Nottinghamshire's Kirstie Gordon and Sussex's Linsey Smith also both receive first-time call-ups.

Their selection follows strong performances in women's domestic cricket, both at county level and across the KSL.

England's squad of fifteen is as follows:

Heather Knight (Berkshire), Captain

Tammy Beaumont (Kent)

Katherine Brunt (Yorkshire)

Sophia Dunkley (Middlesex)

Sophie Eccelstone (Lancashire)

Tash Farrant (Kent)

Kirstie Gordon (Nottinghamshire)

Jenny Gunn (Warwickshire)

Dani Hazell (Yorkshire)

Amy Jones (Warwickshire), Wicketkeeper

Nat Sciver (Surrey)

Linsey Smith (Sussex)

Anya Shrubsole (Somerset)

Lauren Winfield (Yorkshire)

Danni Wyatt (Sussex)

Coach Mark Robinson said:

"It's always an exciting time when any England squad is announced but especially when there are three newcomers included.

"Sophia, Kirstie and Linsey have all had outstanding summers domestically and impressed when they have been in and around the group. All three will bring something different to the squad.

"Everyone is looking forward to the challenges ahead and we can't wait to get out there and get started."

The tournament will be played in the West Indies and will be played between the 9th and 24th November 2018
