Alice Capsey and Freya Kemp received maiden call ups as England announced their 15-member ODI squad for the upcoming three-match series at home against India.
In the absence of Heather Knight and Nat Sciver, who are currently on a break, Amy Jones will continues to lead the hosts. The 29-year-old led England to a 2-1 T20I series win over the women in blue.
