The Women's Ashes 2013-14 December 11, 2013

England's Brunt, Knight and Shrubsole back for Ashes

Katherine Brunt, Heather Knight and Anya Shrubsole have all found a place in England's Test, ODI and T20 squads for the Women's Ashes in Australia, which begins in January. The trio - who have the combined experience of 221 international matches - missed England's recent tour of the West Indies through injury.

Charlotte Edwards will lead England's 15-player squad in one Test, three ODIs and three T20 internationals.

The ECB's selectors have named nearly identical squads in the three formats, with the one change seeing Natasha Farrant replace Lancashire medium-pacer Kathryn Cross - who is part of the Test and ODI squads - for the T20 series.

England won the home Ashes series earlier this year, by the margin of 12 points to four. The return series will retain the points format, with victory in the solitary Test match worth six points (two for a draw), and ODI and T20 wins earning two points.

Test and ODI squads: Charlotte Edwards (capt), Arran Brindle, Katherine Brunt, Kathryn Cross, Georgia Elwiss, Lydia Greenway, Jenny Gunn, Danielle Hazell, Amy Jones, Heather Knight, Natalie Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Sarah Taylor, Lauren Winfield, Danielle Wyatt

T20 squad: Charlotte Edwards (capt), Arran Brindle, Katherine Brunt, Georgia Elwiss, Natasha Farrant, Lydia Greenway, Jenny Gunn, Danielle Hazell, Amy Jones, Heather Knight, Natalie Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Sarah Taylor, Lauren Winfield, Danielle Wyatt
