England's left-arm spinner, Alex Hartley has been recalled to England's squad as the home team confirms a 15-member squad for their upcoming series against New Zealand for three ODI matches.

The 24-year old cricketer only grabbed one-wicket in the three-match ODI series against India in the month of April. She was recalled in the 15-member squad after having a spectacular season of cricket with Lancashire.

"I've been pleased with how we've played this summer," England head coach Mark Robinson said. "We've got a bit of competition for places, which is healthy, and as such we've got a group of players pushing each other to improve all the time.

"It's good to have Alex Hartley back with the group and Katie George has had a promising start to her career at this level and we look forward to taking on New Zealand," he added.

The three-match series will start from July 7, that will make up the third round of ICC's Women's Champion for both the sides. The ODI matches between the two nations will be played in Leeds, Leicester and Derby.
