ENGLAND: Jordan included in England T20 squad to face Pakistan in UAE

15-Sep-2015

Sussex's Chris Jordan has been named in the England T20 to face Pakistan in the UAE in November, after England selectors named their squads for all three formats today.

Jordan, who has missed much of the 2015 season due to injury, will take his place in the squad for the three T20 matches, with two in Dubai and one in Sharjah, at the end of November. The paceman is now fully recovered from the side injury which ruled him out of contention mid-way through the season.

Commenting on the squad, National Selector James Whitaker said: “We would like to congratulate Alastair Cook, Eoin Morgan, Trevor Bayliss and Paul Farbrace on the excellent results they have achieved this summer across all three different formats. We are particularly pleased with the way in which a host of new, young players have swiftly adapted to international cricket and made their mark on the England team in such style.

“The challenge we face against Pakistan will be very different and the composition of our squads reflects the conditions we expect to encounter in the UAE."

ECB also announced today that the former England One-Day captain Paul Collingwood and the former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene, who enjoyed a stint with the Sharks in this season's NatWest T20 Blast, will both join the England management team in consultancy roles at different stages of the winter.

Collingwood, who led England to World T20 success in the Caribbean in 2010 and more recently coached Scotland in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, will work with England’s limited overs squads in the UAE and during next year’s World T20 tournament.

Jayawardene, who retired from international cricket earlier this year after an 18-year career which saw him play 149 Test Matches and 449 One-Day Internationals, will act as a batting consultant to the Test squad for the first part of England’s tour to UAE, taking in the warm-up period and the 1st Test Match against Pakistan.
