England Women have named an unchanged 14-player squad to take on New Zealand Women in their summer programme of three Twenty20 Internationals and five One-Day Internationals.

The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have kept faith with the squad which went out at the group stage of the ICC Women's World Twenty20 in the West Indies and they are up against the same New Zealand squad which went on to finish as runners-up to champions Australia.

"Once again there was stiff competition for places but the selectors feel that this is a balanced squad of highly talented players for both the Twenty20 and the 50 over format," ECB Head of Women's cricket said.

"Whilst the outcome of the tournament in the Caribbean was hugely disappointing, the selectors believe that this group of players have the resolve and skills required to deliver the England women's team back to winning ways."

Jenny Gunn will act as vice-captain to skipper Charlotte Edwards.

The Twenty20 Internationals, at Chelmsford, Southampton and Hove are on 29th June, 1st July and 2nd July and the ODI series visits Taunton, Derby, Barnsley and Lord's between 10th and 20th July.

They also play Ireland Women at Kibworth on 7th July.

England Women: Charlotte Edwards (captain), Jenny Gunn (vice-captain), Katherine Brunt, Holly Colvin, Lydia Greenway, Danielle Hazell, Heather Knight, Laura Marsh, Beth Morgan, Nicky Shaw, Anya Shrubsole, Claire Taylor, Sarah Taylor, Danielle Wyatt
