Katie George has been included in England women's squad for the first time.

The 18 year-old all-rounder, from Romsey, is one of three uncapped players in the 16-strong squad, for a one-day international series against India and a Twenty20 tri-series that includes Australia.

Sarah Taylor and Brunt will miss England Women's limited-overs tour of India.

With wicketkeeper-batsman Sarah Taylor rested and bowler Katherine Brunt unavailable after injuring her back during the Women's Big Bash League, Bryony Smith and Alice Davidson-Richards havbe also been called up for the first time.

Katie helped the Southern Vipers win the inaugural Kia Super League and impressed in last year's final. 

Her Vipers teammate Tash Farrant is also in the latest England squad for a tour that begins with a T20 international against Australia in Mumbai on March 23.

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."
