Victoria wicketkeeper Emma Inglis has received her first Twenty20 international call-up, after being included in the Australia Women's squad for the upcoming T20I series against Pakistan. Inglis, 26, will replace Jess Cameron, who was ruled out of the series after suffering a fracture on her left hand during the third ODI in Brisbane.

Inglis had been named in Australia's ODI squad for the 2007-08 season as a back-up wicketkeeper following two impressive seasons in the Women's National Cricket League, but she did not play a single game.

As a result of Inglis' inclusion, left-hand batsman Nicole Bolton, who was named the player of the series in the ODIs after collecting 152 runs from four matches, has been released from the squad and she will return to Victoria to continue her pre-season training.

The four-match T20 series between the two sides, which will be played at the Kerrydale Oval in the Gold Coast, wil begin from August 30 with the final match on September 5.

    Where is Beth Mooney!? By far the best Keeper/batswoman in the country. She will be playing for Australia for many years to come, give her the gloves now!
