BBC Sport reports from the England women's training camp as they prepare for the World Twenty20 tournament in Bangladesh as professionals.
The English Cricket Board announced in February that the women's team would be full-time professionals, a move which captain Charlotte Edwards hopes "other sports in the country will follow".
England have just won back-to-back Ashes series and start as one of the favourites for the World Twenty20, which begins on 16 March.
