ENGLAND: Wright included in T20 squad for India

28-Nov-2012


Sussex's Luke Wright has been included in a 13-man squad for the two match T20 series against India next month, following his consistent performances with the bat for his country in the World Twenty20 which took place in Sri Lanka in September.

Stuart Broad will lead the T20 side in a two match series with Surrey pace bowler Stuart Meaker the only player included in the squad not to have played a T20 match for England before. Two members of the 13-man squad were not involved in England’s recent ICC World T20 campaign, James Tredwell and Stuart Meaker.

National selector, Geoff Miller, said: “We know that playing limited overs cricket in India can be challenging but the T20 and ODI series provide an excellent opportunity for these players to show that they have learnt valuable lessons from the last ODI series against India and improved as players in subcontinent conditions. We have selected squads containing experienced international players alongside younger players who have impressed playing for England Lions and the England Performance Programme recently and who deserve an opportunity to establish themselves in the England side.

“We are constantly looking to manage the workload of players as effectively as possible and this winter is no different so there are number of players who are being rested for parts of the winter programme. This will enable them to take part in fitness and conditioning programmes in preparation for a busy 2013.”
