The England women’s selectors have included Yorkshire’s Katherine Brunt and Danielle Hazell in a 15-player squad for the England women’s tour of Australia in January.
Pace bowler Katherine Brunt will return to the squad following a period of strength and conditioning as England head Down Under to defend their Ashes crown.
England will play three One Day Internationals, a five match international Twenty20 series and a four-day Test for the women’s Ashes from 5th-25th January. The 1st and 2nd Twenty20 matches will be played directly before England men play Australia on 12th and 14th January, at the Adelaide Oval and the MCG respectively. Both of these matches will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
