Sussex's Danni Wyatt and Linsey Smith named in England's World T20 squad

Two Sussex players have been named in England's squad of 15 for the Women's World T20 which starts next month.

England regular and Sussex star Danni Wyatt is joined in the squad by her 23-year-old teammate, Linsey Smith after the left-arm spinner took 10 wickets and impressed during the Kia Super League whilst playing for Lougborough Lightning. 

Sussex's Smith is one of three players to have recieved their first call-up to the national side, joining Nottinghamshire's Kirstie Gordon, also a left-arm spinner, and Middlesex and Surrey Stars batter Sophia Dunkley on the plane to the Caribbean.

The squad selection follows strong performances in women's domestic cricket, both at county level and across the KSL.

Coach Mark Robinson said: "It's always an exciting time when any England squad is announced but especially when there are three newcomers included.

"Sophia, Kirstie and Linsey have all had outstanding summers domestically and impressed when they have been in and around the group. All three will bring something different to the squad.

"Everyone is looking forward to the challenges ahead and we can't wait to get out there and get started."
