Yorkshire Diamonds all-rounder Alice Davidson-Richards is expecting a fiercely competitive and exciting women’s World T20, which starts in the Caribbean today.

Davidson-Richards says England are amongst the favourites as they bid to add to the one-day World Cup crown they won on home soil in 2017.

England have suffered an injury setback with Yorkshire star Katherine Brunt’s long-standing back injury flaring up again in a warm-up match earlier in the week. The all-rounder has now been ruled out of the tournament and replaced by Fran Wilson.

But Davidson-Richards, nicknamed ADR, has highlighted England’s variety in their squad as a major plus for coach Mark Robinson and captain Heather Knight.

“They will be able to deal with all the conditions they are faced with out there,” said the 24-year-old, who has a rookie contract with England and played one one-day and five T20 internationals on tour in India earlier this year.

“They have players who can smash it to all parts, players who can grind out a total. They also have a really well balanced bowling attack.
