Eng vs India 2021 – Emily Arlott earns maiden England call-up for India Test



Tash Farrant, Sophia Dunkley also called up as Nat Sciver is named vice-captain across all formats

Emily Arlott has earned a maiden call-up to the England Women’s squad ahead of their Test against India after taking a hat-trick in domestic cricket last weekend.
She joins fellow seamer Tash Farrant, who has also enjoyed a strong start to the domestic season, in an extended 17-player squad which is expected to be trimmed before the Test starts in Bristol on June 16. Also untried in the format and called into England’s squad announced on Wednesday are Sophia Dunkley, Sarah Glenn, Mady Villiers and Freya Davies.

Arlott, 23, produced a four-wicket over and finished with 5 for 29 for Central Sparks in a 120-run victory over reigning Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy champions Southern Vipers on Saturday.

Lisa Keightley, England Women’s Head Coach, was at Hove to witness her performance but Arlott was already on the radar, having also caught the attention of Heather Knight, the England captain, when her Western Storm side faced Sparks the previous week.
