England on Friday announced a 14-member T20I squad and a 15-member ODI squad for the upcoming series against India. Notably, both the series will be Jos Buttler’s first as the regular white-ball captain of the England men’s cricket team. England’s World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan, who was captaining the team in the shorter formats until June this year, announced his retirement from international cricket on Tuesday.
Uncapped Lancashire pacer Richard Gleeson has been included in England’s T20I squad to face India, while right-hand batter Harry Brook and leg-spinner Matt Parkinson have also got chances. The likes of pacer Reece Topley, opener Phil Salt and all-rounder David Willey who performed exceptionally in the recent 3-match ODI series against the Netherlands have been included in both the ODI and T20I squads.
Jonny Bairstow and Test team captain Ben Stokes will not be part of the 3- match T20I series which starts from July 1, but will return for the 50-over matches against Rohit Sharma’s men. Joe Root will also be part of the ODI series only. Dawid Malan, part of the T20I squad, hasn’t been picked for the ODIs.
The likes of Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, and Jason Roy have found places in both squads.
