Batting all-rounder Sophia Dunkley has been named in the England’s ODI squad for the series against India following an impressive performance on her Test debut.
The three-match series begins in Bristol on Sunday.
India, playing their first red-ball match in almost seven years, pulled off a dramatic draw in the one-off Test last week.
Dunkley had scored an unbeaten 74 in that game. The 22-year-old has played 15 T20s but is yet to make her ODI debut.
“Sophia Dunkley is included, and could make her ODI debut when the series gets underway at Bristol on Sunday 27 June,” said the ECB in a statement.
Freya Davies and Sarah Glenn, who returned to their regional teams during the one-off Test, are back in the squad.
A three-match T20 series follows the ODIs.
Heather Knight (captain), Emily Arlott, Tammy Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Kate Cross, Freya Davies, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Tash Farrant, Sarah Glenn, Amy Jones, Nat Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Mady Villiers, Fran Wilson, Lauren Winfield-Hill.
