MINETY World Cup winner Fran Wilson has been named in England Women's squad for the limited-overs tour of India.

Wilson, who helped England to World Cup glory last year, has been included in the 16-strong squad, but Sarah Taylor and Katherine Brunt will miss out.

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 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. In Sarah's case, she's been doing really well and we always targeted this period as one where she can focus on her well-being in preparation for what will be a busy summer leading into the ICC World T20.

"It's very exciting to have three new faces in the group - and to welcome back a few others. Obviously that means a few have missed out but they can use the time to their advantage and come back more strongly."
