England Women have announced their squad for the first Royal London Women's ODI.

A squad of 14 has been named, with the England Women's Academy playing against Australia A throughout the ODI series providing the option for additional back-up.

Captain Heather Knight said: "We're massively excited now and we just want to get started. You play cricket for series like this, they're special, so we're all just raring to go.

"It wasn't an easy squad to pick. We've won 14 games in a row and during that time time different people have performed and stuck their hand up. That bodes well for the Ashes and hopefully we can maintain that form throughout this series.

"We're really happy with this group. There's a good feeling amongst us and we want to go out there and regain the Ashes. That's our primary focus for the next month."
