Full England Squad:

Freya Davies (Sussex)
Sophie Ecclestone (Lancashire)
Georgia Elwiss (Sussex)

Keightley said: “It’s really exciting to name our squad for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup and we’re looking forward to getting out there and getting underway.

“It was very useful to join the group in Malaysia and watch how they were getting on and since then we’ve had a training block out in La Manga.

“There are few better feelings in cricket than representing your country in a World Cup and I know everyone’s really looking forward to the challenge.”
