NEXT MATCH: Worcestershire vs Sussex Sharks

Freya Davies picked for England's ODI series against India

Sussex's Freya Davies is part of a 16-strong squad for England Women's Royal London Series against India.

Freya and Sarah Glenn, who returned to their regional teams during the LV= Insurance Test match, are back in the squad. Sophia Dunkley is also included, and could make her ODI debut when the series gets underway at Bristol this Sunday.

Head Coach Lisa Keightley said:  "We're looking forward to playing ODI cricket again after a hugely enjoyable and hard-fought Test match.

"The competition for places across all formats is growing every time we meet to select a squad. The options available to us are the strongest we've had since I’ve been in the role and we feel this group gives us a great opportunity for success in the ODI element of the series.

"There's no space on this occasion for Danni Wyatt and Georgia Elwiss, and while I know they're both disappointed to miss out, it's important that they're given the opportunity to play cricket at a regional level ahead of the Vitality IT20 series.

"We have to balance the needs of the squad and the need of the individual and we'll always be keen to get people playing competitive cricket where we can."
