ENGLAND: Luke Wright and Chris Jordan picked for England ODI squads against Australia and Ireland

27-Aug-2013

Sussex's Luke Wright and Chris Jordan have both been selected in a 14-man squad for the one day international against Ireland taking place at Malahide Cricket Club on Tuesday 3rd September and a 14-man squad for the five match NatWest ODI series against Australia commencing Friday 6th September.

Eoin Morgan will captain both squads in the absence of Alastair Cook who is being rested following the recent 3-0 Investec Ashes series victory along with a number of other senior players- James Anderson, Ian Bell, Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann.

National selector, Geoff Miller, said: “Following a very intense period of cricket this summer we have decided to rest a number of senior players which will allow them to recover from a heavy workload over the last three months and to prepare for the tour of Australia which begins in eight weeks. This creates an excellent opportunity for players who have impressed in county cricket and for England Lions recently to test themselves at international level as we continue to build a squad ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup which is less than 18 months away. There are a number of very experienced one day players in the squad alongside players who are new to international cricket and we are expecting a very tough challenge both from a strong Ireland side and then from Australia in what will no doubt be a very competitive NatWest series.”
