    Yorkshire’s Katherine Brunt and Lauren Winfield will be hoping to line up for their country on their home ground this year.

    All-Rounder Brunt said: “I love playing at Yorkshire. It’s obviously a place that means a lot to me and to Lauren Winfield, as well. There’s a lot of pride in coming from Yorkshire and I know both our families will be out in force in September supporting the White Rose and the England team.”

    Brunt and Winfield named in squad for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup

  • England Women have named their squad for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in what will be Lisa Keightley’s first tournament as Head Coach.

    The 15-strong group features one change from the squad that won the IT20 series 3-0 against Pakistan in December, with all-rounder Georgia Elwiss taking the place of Kirstie Gordon.

    Keightley said: “It’s really exciting to name our squad for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup and we’re looking forward to getting out there and getting underway.

    “It was very useful to join the group in Malaysia and watch how they were getting on and since then we’ve had a training block out in La Manga.

    “There are few better feelings in cricket than representing your country in a World Cup and I know everyone’s really looking forward to the challenge.”

    Prior to the T20 World Cup, England’s new era will start with a tri-series against tournament hosts Australia and India, with two fixtures against each team and a final for the teams who finish first and second. The matches will be played in Canberra and Melbourne.

    England’s tournament proper gets underway against South Africa at the WACA on Sunday February 23, after two warm-up fixtures against New Zealand and Sri Lanka.
