England Women have recalled World Cup winners Katherine Brunt and Holly Colvin to a 15-member squad which will take on India Women for two Twenty20 Internationals and five One-Day Internationals in June and July.

Brunt was rested for the recent tours of South Africa and New Zealand while Colvin was unavailable due to university commitments.

"In the next five months England women will play a total of 15 NatWest International matches before joining the England men’s team in Sri Lanka for the ICC World Twenty20," Clare Connor, Head of England Women's cricket said.

"This is an unprecedented period of international women’s cricket and the players have all worked phenomenally hard over the winter, at home and abroad, to earn their selection as competition for places continues to grow. 

"Katherine Brunt and Holly Colvin were both part of the triumphant squad that won the NatWest Women’s Quadrangular Series last year, and their return will add exciting options to a squad that is developing in depth with every series that comes around."

England Women squad: Charlotte Edwards (captain), Tamsin Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Arran Brindle, Holly Colvin, Georgia Elwiss, Lydia Greenway, Jenny Gunn, Danielle Hazell, Heather Knight, Laura Marsh, Susie Rowe, Anya Shrubsole, Sarah Taylor, Danielle Wyatt
