Named in the group that will return on Monday are Kent Cricket players Tammy Beaumont, Fran Wilson, Alice Davidson-Richards and Kirstie Gordon.

Players will initially train on their own before taking part in small group sessions.

The ECB say the women will train under the same medical guidelines and bio-secure conditions as have been in place for England Men.

Zak Crawley and Joe Denly have been named in a 30-strong training group for England men ahead of their first test against West Indies.

The women will be split between the National Performance Centre in Loughborough, Headingley, The Oval, Bristol County Ground, Chester’s Boughton Hall CC and the County Ground, Hove.

Jonathan Finch, director of England women's cricket, said: "We remain hopeful of playing cricket this summer and it's exciting for this group of players to be able to return to training.

"We've had great support from the first-class counties with the use of their venues, and we're grateful to them for that, and hopefully this is one step closer towards England Women returning to the field this summer."
