India and England are currently playing the fifth rescheduled Test match in Birmingham. Both teams are also set to clash during the white-ball games after the conclusion of the Test match. India already revealed their white-ball squad before the start of the first Test. Now, the hosts have also done the same bringing out some unexpected names.
Jos Butler was named the limited-overs captain after the retirement of Eoin Morgan a couple of days ago. Harry Brook, the Yorkshire batter, has been in incredible form and has been rewarded for his recent performance with a place in the T20I as well as the ODI side.
Matt Parkinson has also been included in the side due to Adil Rashid’s unavailability for the upcoming series against India. The leg spinner has been awarded permission by the England board to attend The Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. Ben Stokes is another player who was expected to miss the series in order to stay fresh for the upcoming South Africa series next month. But a face-to-face meeting with the board seems to have worked in his favour and the Test captain would be allowed to play in the ODI series against India.
Pacer Richard Gleeson would be making his debut as an England player in the T20I series. Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow have been rested for the T20I series as they would have played a long Test series as well as a Test match against India before the T20I series starts. David Malan, the fourth-ranked T20I player in the world has been retained in the T20I series but has not been included in the ODI series.
Here are the England T20I and ODI squad for the limited-overs series against India.
England T20 squad: J Buttler (captain), M Ali, H Brook, S Curran, R Gleeson, C Jordan, L Livingstone, D Malan, T Mills, M Parkinson, J Roy, P Salt, R Topley, D Willey.
England ODI squad: J Buttler (captain), M Ali, J Bairstow, H Brook, B Carse, S Curran, L Livingstone, C Overton, M Parkinson, J Root, J Roy, P Salt, Ben Stokes, R Topley, D Willey.
