Spinner Alex Hartley has been recalled to England's squad for the women's one-day international series against New Zealand, which starts on Saturday.

Pace bowler Katie George is also included after impressing in the Twenty20 tri-series, where England beat the Kiwis in the final on Sunday.

Off-spinner Dani Hazell misses out from the ODI squad which beat South Africa 2-1 last month.

"I've been pleased with how we've played," said coach Mark Robinson.

"We've got a bit of competition for places, which is healthy, and as such we've got a group of players pushing each other to improve all the time.

"It's good to have Alex Hartley back with the group, Katie George has had a promising start to her career at this level and we look forward to taking on New Zealand."

Aside from Hazell, left-arm seamer Tash Farrant is the only player who featured in the T20 tri-series who is not included in this latest squad.

England ODI squad: Heather Knight (Berkshire, capt), Tammy Beaumont (Kent), Katherine Brunt (Yorkshire), Sophie Ecclestone (Lancashire), Georgia Elwiss (Sussex), Katie George (Hampshire), Jenny Gunn (Warwickshire), Alex Hartley (Lancashire), Amy Jones (Warwickshire, wk), Laura Marsh (Kent), Anya Shrubsole (Somerset), Nat Sciver (Surrey), Sarah Taylor (Sussex, wk), Lauren Winfield (Yorkshire), Danni Wyatt (Sussex)
