Both will be available for the Charlotte Edwards Cup this weekend. England head coach Lisa Knightley said, ‘We have played good cricket in Tests and ODIs and we have selected a strong team for the international T20 series. We are leading 6-4 in this multi-format series and will try our best to win. “We probably didn’t play our best in the third ODI, so I want to not give us any chances in the first T20 international,” he said.
The England team is: Heather Knight (Captain), Tammy Beaumont, Catherine Brunt, Freya Davis, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Tash Forrant, Sarah Glenn, Amy Jones, Nat Skywer, Anya Shrubsole, Maddie Villiers, Fran Wilson, Danny Wyatt.
