Sophia Dunkley and Katie George have been picked in England's squad for the forthcoming five-match T20I series against West Indies. The 16-member contingent features most of the squad that featured in England's run to the semifinal of the T20 World Cup in Australia early this year with only Georgia Elwiss missing out due to a back injury.

Leg-spinner Dunkley made the last of her 10 T20I appearances in March last year in Sri Lanka. She has one wicket and 49 runs under her belt. Left-arm medium pacer George last represented England in 2018. Allrounder Bryony Smith and left-arm spinner Linsey Smith have been named as standbys.

Lauren Bell, Alice Davidson-Richards, Kirstie Gordon, Emma Lamb, Bryony Smith, Linsey Smith and Issy Wong, who were part of England's bio-secure bubble in Derby and not named in the final squad of 16, will be released to play in the final round of Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Trophy fixtures and the final.

"It's been a challenging summer for everyone and we are privileged to be in a position to play an international series, and to get the chance to showcase the women's game," England Women head coach Lisa Keightley said. "We have worked hard since the group came back together in preparation for this series and we're in a great place going into the Vitality IT20s against West Indies."

The first game of the series begins on September 21 with the series finale set for September 30.

Squad:Heather Knight, Tammy Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Kate Cross, Freya Davies, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Katie George, Sarah Glenn, Amy Jones, Nat Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Mady Villiers, Fran Wilson, Lauren Winfield, Danni Wyatt
