Gunn and Jones in England squad for New Zealand ODIs

England have named Warwickshire's Jenny Gunn and Amy Jones in squad of 15 for the Royal London ODI series against New Zealand.

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.

  • Heather Knight (captain, Berkshire)
  • Tammy Beaumont (Kent)
  • Katherine Brunt (Yorkshire)
  • Sophie Ecclestone (Lancashire)
  • Georgia Elwiss (Sussex)
  • Katie George (Hampshire)
  • Jenny Gunn (Warwickshire)
  • Alex Hartley (Lancashire)
  • Amy Jones (wicketkeeper, Warwickshire)
  • Laura Marsh (Kent)
  • Anya Shrubsole (Somerset)
  • Nat Sciver (Surrey)
  • Sarah Taylor (wicketkeeper, Sussex)
  • Lauren Winfield (Yorkshire)
  • Danni Wyatt (Sussex)

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."
