Wolverhampton’s Georgia Elwiss has been called up to the England women’s one-day international squad in India as cover for captain Heather Knight, who is struggling with a hamstring injury.

“We have a few concerns around Heather’s hamstring so we wanted the cover of an experienced batting all-rounder,” explained head coach Mark Robinson.

“Georgia gives us another option. She’s in India as she’s been working independently in Mumbai with one of our coaches so it made sense to extend her stay and add her to the squad.”

Anya Shrubsole will captain the side for the first time, should Knight not be passed fit.
