Nottinghamshire Trio Named
In England Women's Squads

Featured News | 4th August 2014

Nottinghamshire bowler Sonia Odedra has been named in England Women’s Test squad to face India this summer.

Odedra’s inclusion follows a number of appearances for England Academy Women, and she will join Nottinghamshire’s Jenny Gunn in the squad, who has been a mainstay of the international side in recent years. Danielle Wyatt and Odedra have also been named in England Women's Academy side.

England women will first host India in August, as Charlotte Edwards will once again lead the side in a one-off Kia Women’s Test match, followed by a three-match Royal London One Day International series as part of the first round of new ICC Women’s Championship.  The team will then take on South Africa in three NatWest Twenty20 Internationals at the start of September.

ECB Head of England Women’s Cricket, Clare Connor, said: “The three squads for the series against India and South Africa have been selected from a position of real strength, and I am delighted that both Katherine Brunt and Natasha Farrant will return to international action this summer,” said Clare Connor, ECB Head of England Women’s Cricket.

“Appointed to the role of vice-captain, Heather Knight now has the opportunity to learn from the most experienced international captain in the world as she works alongside Charlotte Edwards to help lead the England women’s team at the start of a new professional era for the women’s game.”

The selectors have also today named a 14-strong England Women’s Academy (EWA) squad to play a series of warm-up matches against India and South Africa.  Kent’s Laura Marsh will lead the side, which also includes Fran Wilson (Somerset) and Danielle Wyatt (Nottinghamshire).
