England have confirmed their squad for the five-match Vitality IT20 series against the West Indies, which will take place exclusively at The Incora™ County Ground.

Derbyshire-born leg-spinner Sarah Glenn has become a regular in the England line-up and she’s set to feature in the short format series, all of which will be televised, later this month, with the first game taking place on Monday 21 September.

Sophia Dunkley and Katie George come in to join the 15 which took part in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup, with Georgia Elwiss absent through a back injury.

England Women Head Coach Lisa Keightley said: “It’s been a challenging summer for everyone and we are privileged to be in a position to play an international series, and to get the chance to showcase the women’s game.

“We have worked hard since the group came back together in preparation for this series and we’re in a great place going in to the Vitality IT20s against West Indies.”

South East Stars all-rounder Bryony Smith and Northern Diamonds spinner Linsey Smith are both on standby.

Those players not picked for the final group of 16 are available for their regions in the final round of Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy matches and the final, should their team progress.
