Sophie Ecclestone back in England women’s cricket team for India Tour



England star spinner Sophie Ecclestone on Friday made a comeback to the side for the tour of India next month after undergoing shoulder surgery. Ecclestone had dislocated her right shoulder during the Women’s Hundred in August and went under the knife in September. England will play three T20Is and a one-off Test against India starting on December 6. “She’s the world’s No.1 bowler across both white-ball formats, she’s clearly an outstanding talent in women’s cricket,” England coach Jon Lewis said.

“She’s a really good competitor, she loves to win. So she’s great to have around our side. For the girls to practice against a bowler like that and for Charlie Dean and Sarah Glenn to pick her brains and also Alice Capsey will be invaluable.” T20I squad: Lauren Bell, Maia Bouchier, Alice Capsey, Charlie Dean, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Mahika Gaur, Danielle Gibson, Sarah Glenn, Bess Heath, Amy Jones, Freya Kemp, Heather Knight (capt), Nat Sciver-Brunt , Danielle Wyatt.

Test team:Tammy Beaumont, Lauren Bell, Alice Capsey, Kate Cross, Charlie Dean, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Lauren Filer, Bess Heath, Amy Jones, Heather Knight (capt), Emma Lamb, Nat Sciver-Brunt, Danielle Wyatt.
