Western Storm players named in England Squad
20 June 2019
Heather Knight, Anya Shrubsole and Fran Wilson have all been included in the England squad for the upcoming Vitality IT20 series against the West Indies.
The squad also sees the return of England regulars Katherine Brunt and Nat Sciver, who were rested for the recent Royal London ODI series.
England's clean-sweep in the ODIs means they've now won 13 all-format matches in a row, a run they'll be keen to continue in the Vitality IT20 series, as captain Heather Knight explains. "It's great to set records and break new ground, it's something we talked about as a team when Robbo came in," she said. "What's great is that a winning run requires a lot of hard work and a lot of ruthlessness. It won't continue if we become complacent or begin to let our own standards slip. We've got three games against the West Indies, and three chances to further improve our T20 form. If we can be at our best across these matches that will set us up well for the Ashes.
The squad in full is:
Heather Knight (captain)
