"She's devastated — obviously Test matches don't come around too often, she's a key member of our squad so our thoughts are with her at the moment," he added.

As a result, Beth Mooney is likely to open alongside Alyssa Healy in the pink-ball Test against India, beginning on Thursday.

Mott also said that he is hopeful of leg-spinner Georgia Wareham being declared fit to make her debut."Georgia's ticking all the boxes for her return to play. She was very sensible around that -- she felt something quite early, got treatment and has been doing everything she can to get it right," said Mott.
