England pick Beth Langston & Kate Cross for West Indies

Uncapped seamers Beth Langston and Kate Cross are in England's 14-strong squad for their upcoming limited-overs internationals in the West Indies.

Charlotte Edwards's side face a triangular Twenty20 series against West Indies and New Zealand, before playing three ODIs against the Windies.

Four of the Ashes-winning squad - Anya Shrubsole, Heather Knight, Katherine Brunt and Laura Marsh - are injured.

In addition, all-rounder Arran Brindle misses the tour for personal reasons.

The tri-series, which takes place in Barbados, starts on 14 October, with England's first game against New Zealand two days later.

Who are England's newcomers?

Kate Cross and Beth Langston
  • Kate Cross (left): born Manchester (3 October 1991). Right-handed batter, right-arm medium-fast bowler. Teams: Lancashire, Sapphires, Emeralds, England Academy. Daughter of ex-footballer David Cross, who won the FA Cup with West Ham in 1980
  • Beth Langston (right): born Harold Wood, Essex (6 September 1992). Right-handed batter, right-arm medium pace bowler. Teams: Essex, Emeralds, Diamonds, England Academy

Cross and Langston, both 21, and wicketkeeper-batter Amy Jones are the only players heading to the Caribbean who were not in the squad for the multi-format Women's Ashes, which England won 12-4 on the points-based system.

England & Wales Cricket Board  head of women's cricket Clare Connor said: "After an inspirational summer regaining the Women's Ashes, the England team now embarks on a full winter schedule.

"With a few experienced players currently rehabilitating injuries sustained during the Ashes campaign, a number of young players will have the opportunity to play key roles for the side in what promises to be an exciting tour."

England have also named a 21-strong performance squad for 2013-14, comprising the 14 Windies tourists plus Shrubsole, Knight, Brunt, Marsh, Brindle, seamer Georgia Elwiss and batter Fran Wilson.

A 15-player squad for the return Women's Ashes series in Australia - which starts in January - will be named in December.
