England head coach Tracy Neville has dropped Commonwealth Games-winning captain Ama Agbeze for the Netball World Cup in July.
Agbeze led England to a gold medal in Australia last year but has had a difficult season with injuries limiting her playing time for new club London Pulse who finished bottom of the Superleague.
Agbeze, 36, made her England debut in 2001 and was named captain in 2016 but was not selected for the previous World Cup in 2015.
The defender missed January’s Quad Series with a knee injury and has struggled for consistent game time since returning to the UK for London Pulse after spells in Australia and New Zealand.
Defender Beth Cobden, another member of the Commonwealth Games team, will also miss the World Cup after suffering a serious knee ligament injury last weekend.
