SARAH TAYLOR and Katherine Brunt will miss England Women’s limited-overs tour of India.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Taylor has been rested while bowler Brunt is unavailable after injuring her back during the Women’s Big Bash League.
Uncapped trio Bryony Smith, Alice Davidson-Richards and Katie George were named by England in a 16-strong squad for a one-day international series against India and a Twenty20 tri-series that includes Australia.
Kate Cross, Tash Farrant and Amy Jones are all in contention to feature in England’s opening T20 international against Australia in Mumbai on March 23 after returning to the group.
Coach Mark Robinson said: “We’ve said for a long time that we need to play more games and it’s exciting that we’ve been able to arrange this very competitive series outside of the ICC Women’s Championship.
“It gives us a chance to see other players and measure their progress and that also means we can rest and rotate.”
