Dunkley returns for New Zealand series

Sophia Dunkley has been selected to potentially make her return to T20I cricket, as she joins England’s 16-player squad for the upcoming series against New Zealand. This inclusion marks the only change in the squad that recently won against Pakistan in May. Freya Kemp, who previously played as a specialist batter due to injury, has been cleared to resume bowling.

The five-match T20I series, aimed at preparing for the T20 World Cup in Bangladesh later this year, commences on July 6 in Southampton. The squad, led by head coach Jon Lewis, views this series as crucial in their preparations for the global tournament.

Mahika Gaur, the promising 18-year-old fast bowler, misses out on selection due to a side strain. However, she remains part of the squad’s plans as she recuperates.
