England Name Ashes Squad

England have named 18 players in their provisional Ashes squad, with the only "surprise" being the inclusion of the currently-injured Katherine Brunt - I'm guessing more in hope than expectation. Apparently, the plan is to whittle this down to 15 at the beginning of August, ready for the Ashes Test on August 11th. (For what it's worth, I've highlighted my Test XI and struck-through those I think will be whittled!)
  • Charlotte Edwards (Kent, capt)
  • Arran Brindle (Sussex)
  • Sarah Taylor (Sussex)
  • Lydia Greenway (Kent)
  • Georgia Elwiss (Sussex)
  • Danielle Hazell (Yorkshire)
  • Danielle Wyatt (Nottinghamshire)
  • Jenny Gunn (Nottinghamshire)
  • Heather Knight (Berkshire)
  • Natalie Sciver (Surrey)
  • Holly Colvin (Sussex)
  • Anya Shrubsole (Somerset)
  • Amy Jones (Warwickshire)
  • Natasha Farrant (Kent)
  • Tammy Beaumont (Kent)
  • Katherine Brunt (Yorkshire)
  • Laura Marsh (Kent)
  • Lauren Winfield (Yorkshire)
(Yes - I wouldn't play Shrubsole in the Test - she has the pedigree; but in a match we really, really, really can't afford to lose, she is too much of an injury-risk.)
