WOMENS: Brindle, Elwiss and Taylor all included for England tour to Australia

Sussex will once again be well represented in the England Womens’ Squads this winter as no less than three players have been selected in the Ashes, ODI and T20 squads.

Arran Brindle, Sarah Taylor and Georgia Elwiss have all been included in all three squads.

England, who will be led by Charlotte Edwards in all three formats, will contest one Test Match, three One-Day Internationals and three T20 Internationals against their hosts. The series will again be played as a multi-format contest with England seeking to defend the trophy they won by twelve points to four on home soil earlier this year.

England will also be bolstered by the return of Katherine Brunt, Heather Knight and Anya Shrubsole after the highly experienced trio all missed the tour of the West Indies through injury.

ECB Head of England Women’s cricket Clare Connor said: “We are pleased to welcome three of our most senior players back to the squad for what promises to be a very competitive series against one of the strongest sides in the women’s world game.

“Last summer’s series in England was watched by more spectators than ever before and the international women’s game will gain further exposure this winter with all three T20 internationals being played as double headers prior to the men’s T20 fixtures.

“The England Women’s team also continues to gain wider recognition for its achievements and we were delighted to see the squad nominated for the Team of the Year award at last week’s Sunday Times Sky Sports Sportswomen of the Year Awards.

“But there can be no room for complacency on our part and we must continue to perform at a very high level if we are to achieve our twin objectives this winter – retaining the Ashes in Australia and winning the Women’s World T20 tournament in Bangladesh.”

The Women’s Ashes points format:

Winners of the Test Match – six points, points shared if match drawn
Winners of ODI – two points – one point for tie/abandonment
Winners of T20 – two points – one over eliminator in event of tie

The team that accrues the most points across all three formats will win the Women's Ashes Series.
