Amy Jones to continue as captain in Knight’s absence

The series against India will mark the first set of fixtures for England in the ongoing 2022–2025 ICC Women's Championship cycle. The championship itself serves as a qualification setup for the 2025 Women’s World Cup.

Amy Jones is set to continue as captain, having previously led the English team in their 2-1 win in the T20Is against the ‘Women in Blue’. Here is a look at the entire 15-player team for the ODI series:

England Women Squad: Amy Jones, Tammy Beaumont, Lauren Bell, Maia Bouchier, Alice Capsey, Kate Cross, Freya Davies, Alice Davidson-Richards, Charlie Dean, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Freya Kemp, Emma Lamb, Issy Wong, Danni Wyatt.

Speaking on Jones’ extended captaincy term in the absence of regular skipper Heather Knight, England Women’s Head Coach Lisa Keightley said:

“Amy did a great job as captain and she was ably supported by Sophie so we want them to carry on what they’ve been doing. It’s another big series, especially with points counting towards ICC Women’s World Cup qualification, and with the summer ending at Lord’s there’s a lot to be excited about.”
