Wyatt will debut in Thursday’s Test at Trent Bridge at age 32, after playing 245 white-ball games for England over the past 13 years.
The No.6 will also be sent out with one clear message: Take the game on and put the pressure back on an all-conquering Australian side who have held the multi-format Ashes since 2015.
“At one point Danni probably thought she would never get a Test cap, we picked her because want her to play exactly like she does in ODI cricket,” captain Heather Knight said.
“She is one of the best attackers of spin in the world, and she makes it very tricky to set fields.
“We want her to have a little bit of a counter punch and use her experience there as well.”
Knight also wants her team to play the same style of cricket that has captivated the country over the past 12 months in the men’s team.
In many ways, England’s women pre-dated Bazball on their last tour of Australia when they scored at 5.1 an over to almost chase down 257 on the final day in Canberra in 2021-22.
“The last innings at Canberra is a great example of how I want us to play this Test match,” Knight said.
“We are different teams (to the men’s), but there are some parallels in that we want to play entertaining cricket.
“We want to entertain. We want to play cricket people want to watch.
“When we do play red-ball cricket as women’s cricketers we feel like we are fighting for the format sometimes.
“Obviously playing a lot of white-ball cricket over our careers, that is what comes naturally to us. It will probably be closer to a white-ball game than Test cricket.”
Pace bowler Lauren Filer will also make her debut for England, preferred over Issy Wong to round out the hosts’ attack.
