Mady Villiers returns to national squad as Lauren Winfield-Hill and Kate Cross miss out on selection
Wyatt has not made an international half-century since December 2019 and struggled to make an impact during the winter tour to New Zealand, with a top score of 33 across six innings. But she has been in good form for the Southern Vipers in domestic cricket this season, making fifties in her first three innings of the summer in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy and a quickfire 45 against Central Sparks in the opening game of the Charlotte Edwards Cup, and has been rewarded with an international recall.
Lisa Keightley, England’s head coach, said: “We’ve played some good cricket across both the Test and the ODIs and we’ve named a strong squad for the T20I series. It’s 6-4 in the multi-format series and it’s a series we’re pushing hard to win.
“We probably weren’t quite at our best in the third ODI so I’d like us to hit the ground running in the first T20I and be ruthless.”
England squad: Heather Knight (captain), Tammy Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Freya Davies, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Tash Farrant, Sarah Glenn, Amy Jones, Nat Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Mady Villiers, Fran Wilson, Danni Wyatt
Fixtures: 1st T20I (Northampton) – July 9, 2nd T20I (Hove) – July 11, 3rd T20I (Chelmsford) – July 14
