Freya Davies & Danni Wyatt in England Ashes squad, Georgia Elwiss picked for England A

Sussex's Freya Davies and Danni Wyatt have been named in the England squad for next month's Women's Ashes series in Australia.

Their county teammate, Georgia Elwiss, has been selected in the England Women's A squad which will accompany the senior group throughout the tour.

There is a 17-strong senior group, and 12 players in the England Women's A squad. Selection will focus on the senior group but there is scope for members of the England Women's A squad to be called into the Ashes squad while on tour.

Head Coach Lisa Keightley said: "It's always exciting to head to Australia to take on the challenge of winning the Ashes and we're really looking forward to going out there and making some memories as a team.

"This is the first time we've taken an England Women's A squad alongside the senior team, which is a big step forward for us. It gives us great depth, and provides so much competition for places. It's also an invaluable development opportunity for those players pushing for senior selection.

"Similarly, it's also a good chance to get more 50-over cricket under our belts ahead of our defence of the ICC Women's World Cup in New Zealand.

"We've got a nice blend of experienced pros and youngsters, and it's a trip we've been preparing for since the end of our summer. A multi-format series is a great test of all our skills, and we can't wait to get out there."
