WOMENS: Sussex pair in squad for Hove clash

24-Aug-2015

Sussex's Georgia Elwiss and Sarah Taylor have both been included in the England women’s squad for the three remaining Women’s Ashes NatWest International T20s, one of which is Friday night's clash at The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground.

The 14-strong squad features two changes from the squad selected for the Kia Women’s Ashes Test – off-spinner Danielle Hazell (Yorkshire) and Nottinghamshire all-rounder Danielle Wyatt replacing Kate Cross and Fran Wilson. Hazell is currently the number one IT20 bowler in the ICC’s player rankings and Wyatt has scored heavily in county cricket this summer.

The three NatWest IT20s, which are worth two points each to the winner, will be played on Wednesday 26th August (The Essex County Ground, Chelmsford), Friday 28th August (The BirghtonandHoveJobs.com County Ground, Hove) and Monday 31 August (The SSE SWALEC, Cardiff).

England must win all three encounters to retain the Women’s Ashes, after Australia secured an 8-2 lead in the multi-format series as a result of winning the standalone Kia Women’s Ashes Test (worth four points) and securing a 2-1 victory in the Royal London One-Day Internationals (worth two points each). Australia require just one more win to take them to an unassailable total of ten points to reclaim the Women’s Ashes.

ECB’s Head of England Women’s Performance, Paul Shaw, said, “We have called-up Danielle Hazell and Danielle Wyatt for the three must-win Women’s Ashes NatWest IT20s. Together they offer us a lot of international T20 experience, with well over 100 caps in this format between them, and Danielle Hazell currently topping the ICC IT20 bowling rankings.

“We know that we face a huge challenge to get back into this Women’s Ashes contest, but there is a lot of pride and fight within this England women’s squad, and I know that the players will give it everything in these last three matches.”
