The England and Wales Cricket Board today named England’s provisional 30-man squad for the forthcoming ICC World Twenty20, to be staged in the Caribbean from April 30 this year.

The squad – which will be halved by March 30 – includes uncapped players Steven Finn (Middlesex), Michael Lumb (Hampshire), Peter Trego (Somerset), David Wainwright (Yorkshire) and Chris Woakes (Warwickshire).

National selector Geoff Miller said: “The upcoming ICC World Twenty20 is an exciting tournament and we have selected an exciting crop of players in this provisional squad.

“All players named have shown their ability in the shortest form of the game and the selectors have some difficult decisions to make when reducing the squad to 15 players.

“We have a number of young players knocking on the door which underlines the depth in talent currently available and I know all concerned will be hoping they make the final squad for what is a highly anticipated tournament.”
