Despite scoring a groundbreaking 208 – the top score by a woman for England – during the recent Test defeat, Beaumont hasn’t participated in a T20 since January 2022.
Wong, at the age of 21, was previously excluded from England’s T20 World Cup squad this year and didn’t make the cut for the Test XI.
The inaugural T20 is scheduled for Saturday, with Australia currently holding a 4-0 lead in the series.
In order to reclaim the Ashes from Australia, England must secure victories in five of the remaining six matches, which include three T20s and three one-day internationals.
England Squad: Heather Knight (captain, Western Storm), Lauren Bell (Southern Vipers), Maia Bouchier (Southern Vipers), Alice Capsey (South East Stars), Kate Cross (Thunder), Freya Davies (South East Stars), Charlie Dean (Southern Vipers), Sophia Dunkley (South East Stars), Sophie Ecclestone (Thunder), Danielle Gibson (Western Storm), Sarah Glenn (The Blaze), Amy Jones (Central Sparks), Nat Sciver-Brunt (vice-captain, The Blaze), Issy Wong (Central Sparks), Lauren Winfield-Hill (Northern Diamonds), Danielle Wyatt (Southern Brave)
All-rounder Danielle Gibson, 22, has been chosen for her debut in an England T20 squad. Gibson was included in the Test squad but was not featured in the final XI in Nottingham and was a backup for the World Cup earlier this year.
Lauren Filer, a promising pace bowler who took four wickets in her Test debut, is another notable absence.
Joining the team are wicketkeeper-batter Lauren Winfield-Hill, batters Alice Capsey and Maia Bouchier, seamer Freya Davies, and spinners Charlie Dean and Sarah Glenn, who were not selected for the Test.
Nat Sciver-Brunt, all-rounder and vice-captain, who was hampered by a knee problem during the 89-run Test defeat, is anticipated to be ready for selection.
Wong, having played nine T20s with her most recent appearance in December, made a significant mark as the highest wicket-taker amongst pace bowlers in the Women’s Premier League, contributing to the Mumbai Indians’ championship win after being left out of the World Cup squad.
