All-rounder’s return after a year England named white-ball squad for India series

England has announced the white ball squad for the ODI and T20 series against India starting on July 7.

Talisman all-rounder Ben Stokes is all set to return to ODI cricket after a gap of a year. The England Test captain last played ODI cricket in July 2021 before taking a break from the game. He last featured in the three-match series against Pakistan, where he stood as captain.

The first match of the ODI series will be played at The Oval on 12 July before action resumes at Lord’s and Old Trafford.

Ahead of the ODI series, England will play three T20Is against India, which will be seen by both sides as crucial preparation for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. Uncapped fast bowler Richard Gleason has been included in the squad for the T20 series.

T20 Team: Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Harry Brooke, Sam Curran, Richard Gleason, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, David Malan, Tymal Mills, Matthew Parkinson, Jason Roy, Phil Salt, Reece Topley, David Willey.

ODI Team: Jos Buttler (capt), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brooke, Brydon Karrs, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, Craig Overton, Matthew Parkinson, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Phil Salt, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, David Willey.

The two series against India will mark the beginning of a new era for England in white-ball cricket, with Jos Buttler at the helm after the retirement of Eoin Morgan. It will be Buttler’s first full-time assignment as captain, who has been named England’s white-ball captain on Thursday, 30 June.
