Northern Diamonds trio Katherine Brunt, Nat Sciver and Lauren Winfield-Hill have been selected in England’s squad for the ICC Women’s World Cup in New Zealand.

Fifteen players have been chosen to try and retain the trophy that Heather Knight’s team lifted at Lord’s in 2017, alongside two travelling reserves.

Jonathan Finch, Director of England Women’s Cricket, said: “The ICC Women’s World Cup is a special event in the international women’s cricket calendar and we are excited by the squad we have selected.

“The chance to refocus our intentions immediately after the disappointment of the Ashes is exciting and provides an opportunity to embrace the challenge of a global event.

“The England Women’s A series that ran alongside the Ashes enabled a wider group of players to compete for a place in the squad which has made for some tough calls on selection.

“Emma Lamb, a consistent performer across domestic cricket, comes into the squad after making her international debut last summer and offers multiple options with the bat and as an all-rounder with her off-spin bowling.

“Success at World Cups is often the pinnacle of a player’s career and we wish all those selected all the best in their quest to win on the world stage.”
