Cricket news - Legspinner Sarah Glenn earns maiden England call-up
Uncapped Worcestershire leg-spinner Sarah Glenn has earned her maiden call up for England's upcoming series against Pakistan.
England are due to play three ODIs, all part of the ICC Women's ODI Championship, and three T20Is in Malaysia starting December 9 and 17 respectively.
Glenn caught the selectors' attention during the final edition of the Women's Cricket Super League, playing for Loughborough Lightning.
Essex youngster Mady Villiers, who claimed 2/20 on her England debut in the third T20I of the Women's Ashes series in July earlier this year, has retained her spot in the 15-member squad announced on Wednesday (November 13). Sussex pacer Freya Davies, who has played three T20Is against Sri Lanka in Colombo in March, makes her comeback.
Squad: Heather Knight (Captain), Tammy Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Kate Cross, Freya Davies, Sophie Ecclestone, Sarah Glenn, Kirstie Gordon, Amy Jones (wicketkeeper), Natalie Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Mady Villiers, Fran Wilson, Lauren Winfield, Danni Wyatt.
The three ODIs, on December 9, 12 and 14, carry two points each towards the qualification for the 2021 ICC Women's World Cup, though defending champions England are also guaranteed of a spot for the megaevent in New Zealand.
The following T20I series will be a chance for both the sides to fine tune their preparation for the upcoming Women's T20 WC in Australia.
"We're looking forward to getting out there and getting back to international cricket," England captain Heather Knight said. "It's been a few months since our last game and there's been a fair bit of change in that time so this tour is an opportunity to start a new era and move forward.
"There's a few younger faces in the group but also a lot of proven talent. I'm really happy with the group and we can't wait for the next few months."
