Alice Capsey was included in England’s squad for the Women’s T20 World Cup in February despite suffering a broken collarbone last month.
All-around hitter Capsey, 18, suffered the injury in the opening day international against the West Indies and missed the rest of the tour.
Bowler Kate Cross is the only other addition to the T20 squad that won 5-0 in the Caribbean.
“We hope Alice is fit enough,” head coach Jon Lewis said.
“She’s worked incredibly hard alongside the medical staff to get this far and we’ll give her every chance.”
Joining the 15-person group as traveling reserves will be bowler Issy Wong and all-around bowler Dani Gibson.
It will be a first major tournament at the head of the former English fashion designer Lewis, who succeeded Lisa Keightley as head coach in November.
“It’s an honor for me to lead a team to a World Cup,” Lewis added.
“I know we will give everything we have, not only to show everyone who we are as a team and how we want to play, but also to continue to inspire people to play the game we all love. so much.”
The Women’s T20 World Cup takes place in South Africa from February 10-26.
England’s first group stage match will be against West Indies in Paarl on February 11.
