In addition to a single Test match, England and South Africa will play a three-match One Day International (ODI) series and a three-match T20 International (T20I) series with four points available for Test play and two points available for each white ball game.

Speaking of the England squad, head coach Lisa Keightley said the new faces in the team bring a “real level of energy and enthusiasm”. Lisa said:

“There are a number of new faces in the team which brings a real level of energy and excitement. We are at the start of a new cycle of the ICC Women’s Championship, which starts for us with the ODIs Indians, and naturally we’re looking forward to who could be a key player for us in 2025.”

Lisa Keightley further stated that a few spots in the bowling department have opened up with the retirement of a few players and new players are excited to fill those spots. Lisa clarified:

“Similarly with Katherine Brunt being removed from Test cricket and Anya Shrubsole from all forms of international play, a number of bowling spots have opened up which is hugely exciting for these players. I’m sure they will all be very eager to seize their chance.

“We need to balance having the right reinforcement for the senior team while providing playing opportunities. We need our players to play cricket as much as possible, so we deliberately have a small test squad. while the England women’s A team are in action against South Africa.

“It really is a massive summer, with the Commonwealth Games just around the corner, and we can’t wait to get the red ball started in Taunton.”

Meanwhile, the England women’s A team have also been announced for the three-day fixture against South Africa, which kicks off on Tuesday, June 21. The England women’s A team will be managed by Georgia Elwiss and John Stanworth will be the head coach.
