England have named a squad of 15 for the Royal London ODI series against New Zealand, which comes to The 3aaa County Ground on Tuesday 10 July.

Alex Hartley returns and Katie George joins the a strong squad after impressing in the Vitality IT20 Tri-Series.

Off-spinner Dani Hazell misses out from the squad that beat South Africa 2-1 earlier this summer but otherwise the majority of the squad is unchanged.

A year since The 3aaa County Ground played host to eight ICC Women’s World Cup matches, including England’s win over New Zealand in the group stage, the pair will face off again in the day/night Royal London One-Day International.

Over 10,000 people attended the World Cup matches at The 3aaa County Ground and another good crowd is expected for the fixture, which starts at 1pm.

Tickets are only £10 for adults and £3 for under-16s and can be purchased online HERE.

England Coach, Mark Robinson said: “I’ve been pleased with how we’ve played this summer, in both 50-over and IT20 cricket. We’ve got a bit of competition for places, which is healthy, and as such we’ve got a group of players pushing each other to improve all the time.

“It’s good to have Alex Hartley back with the group and Katie George has had a promising start to her career at this level and we look forward to taking on New Zealand.”
