White Ferns coach and selector, Gary Stead, said: "We have kept faith in the same 14 players who recently reached the final of the ICC World Twenty20 2010 in the West Indies.

"The squad features a nice blend of youth and experience and this tour will be used to look at developing some of the new players into important roles.

"This group is versatile and provides plenty of cover for the different conditions we are likely to encounter in England.

"As part of the selection succession planning in leadership positions, Suzie Bates will replace Amy Satterthwaite as vice-captain."
