Anya Shrubsole in England Twenty20 squad

ESPNcricinfo staff

England have included the right-arm seamer Anya Shrubsole to the Twenty20 squad for the five-match series against West Indies starting September 8. Shrubsole is the only change to the squad that beat India in the Twenty20 series in June, coming in place of the seamer Georgia Elwiss. The squad will be retained for the ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka next month.

The five-match series is preceded by two Twenty20 matches against Pakistan and a one-off match against England Women's Academy.

"This schedule of matches against Pakistan and West Indies is excellent preparation in the immediate build-up to the ICC World Twenty20," Clare Connor, head of England Women's Cricket, said. "After an unbeaten run spanning 17 months in international T20 matches, competition for a place in the starting eleven has never been stronger."

England T20 squad: Charlotte Edwards (capt), Tamsin Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Arran Brindle, Holly Colvin, Lydia Greenway, Jenny Gunn, Danielle Hazell, Heather Knight, Laura Marsh, Susie Rowe, Anya Shrubsole, Sarah Taylor, Danielle Wyatt
