They may not be household names, but a group of women from south west London will look to bring home a World Cup win for England.

Sheri Lennon (Roehampton), Tessa Bruyns (Wimbledon) and Rebecca Quick (Sutton) are all part of the Masters indoor cricket squad that will compete in South Africa later this month.

They will be captained by Raynes Park woman Nanette Kritzinger in what will be her third World Cup, and 2nd as England skipper.

"Representing my country is an incredible and humbling experience," Kritzinger said.

"You realise as an individual that you are now part of something so much bigger than yourself, and as a squad you realise that you have a chance to create history.

"Playing for England is the biggest achievement of my sporting career, and on a personal level some of my proudest moments."

Trials started about a year and a half ago and after months of weekend training in Birmingham, fitness work at home and time away from family, the final squad of 12 was announced in March this year.

Never mind making the team, Lennon thought it was an "honour and a privilege" just being asked to trial.

"I remember the day so clearly when I received a text asking if I would be keen to try out for the England Masters squad," she said.

"I didn't even blink, I said yes.

"The feeling of being chosen to represent my country is something that I can't explain. It's a total dream come true.

"At 42 years old, who would've thought I'd be packing my bags and have a kit with my name on it."

This year's team boasts quite a bit of experience as well. Seven of the 12 squad members combine to have 10 world cup appearances.

Heading into her third World Cup, Bruyns will hope to pass along some of the wisdom she has gained over the years.

"It really is the most amazing feeling being chosen to represent England," she said.

"It's such an incredible experience and putting on an England top gives me goosebumps every time."

Quick recently moved to Sutton after years of living in Wimbledon. She added that to represent your country in any sport - big or small - was a privilege.

"I'm excited and nervous for the World Cup," she said.

"Receiving our caps and kit at our last squad training was an awesome feeling.

"I'm proud to represent England in a sport I love playing and feel lucky to have the opportunity to take part in the Masters World Cup."

Kritzinger was 26 years old when she first heard of indoor cricket. She has watched it grow over the years but admits it is still small in comparison to many outdoor sports.

"At that point the only cricket I'd ever played was beach and backyard," she said.

"Friends of mine invited me to watch a game they were playing and it looked like so much fun that I couldn't wait to try it myself."

She is hoping that success on the field will help propel the game into the public's eye.

"Did I ever think that I would play internationally? Not in a million years," the skipper added.

"This just proves that this sport is open to anybody, even if you have never played it before - it's never too late to start."

The team will touch down in Cape Town on October 16 in preparation for the tournament which will begin three days later. Then hopefully on October 27 at tournament's end, they will be able to call themselves world champions.

Here is a list of the full squad: 

Catherine Jones, Rebecca Quick, Jo Foster, Jo Greaves, Saba Nasim, Natasha Bourke, Sarah Curtis (Vice Captain), Farida Bibi, Jen Liu, Nanette Kritzinger (Captain), Sheri Lennon, Tessa Bruyns. Coach: Russell Cobb. Manager: Neeta Patel.
