England have recalled Tammy Beaumont and Lauren Filer into the ODI Ashes squad for their series against Australia this month.

Beaumont scored the first double-hundred by an England woman in Tests in the 89-run defeat to Australia last month, a match where Filer took four wickets on debut, before both were left out of the three-match T20 series.

England won the final two T20 fixtures, by three runs at the Oval and five wickets in a weather-affected game at Lord’s, to claim their first series victory over Australia since 2017 and keep the Ashes alive.

England’s Lauren Bell believes the national team is catching with the standards of their Australian rivals as performances in the 2023 Women’s Ashes have proven so far

Maia Bouchier, Freya Davies and Lauren Winfield-Hill – who were all in the squad for the T20 fixtures – were not among the 15 names selected, with the rest of the squad unchanged from the series win.

England head coach Jon Lewis said: “We were delighted with our T20 series win and look forward to the next stage of the Ashes with everything to play for.

“We’re pleased to welcome Tammy (Beaumont) and Lauren (Filer) back into the group. Tammy showed her quality during the Test match with her double-hundred while Lauren offers us real pace in our bowling alongside Issy (Wong).
