England Women have named their squad for the Vitality Women’s IT20 series against Australia, the final part of the multi-format Women's Ashes series.

With the score at 8-2 to the visitors, England need to win all three remaining games to tie the series 8-8. Australia retained the urn with the drawn Kia Women's Test at Taunton.

The squad sees a first call-up for Essex's Mady Villiers, reward for her approach and performance during England Women's Academy's series against Australia A.

  • Heather Knight (Berkshire, cap)
  • Tammy Beaumont (Kent)
  • Katherine Brunt (Yorkshire)
  • Kate Cross (Lancashire)
  • Sophie Ecclestone (Lancashire)
  • Georgia Elwiss (Sussex)
  • Jenny Gunn (Nottinghamshire)
  • Amy Jones (Warwickshire)
  • Laura Marsh (Kent)
  • Nat Sciver (Surrey)
  • Anya Shrubsole (Berkshire)
  • Sarah Taylor (Sussex)
  • Mady Villiers (Essex)
  • Lauren Winfield (Yorkshire)
  • Danni Wyatt (Sussex)

Captain Heather Knight said: "It’s almost like a one-off IT20 series and we need to give it everything across these last three matches.

"We came back strongly in Australia in 2017 and it would feel very different if we ended up at 8-8. That has to be our aim now and we want to finish strongly."
