The squad contains several players who have been chosen for the ICC World Twenty20 in South Africa, with Darren Maddy, Chris Schofield and Jeremy Snape all hoping to impress.

Worcestershire skipper Vikram Solanki captains the side, which includes 11 players with international experience, plus Sussex all-rounder Luke Wright who shot to fame in this year's domestic Twenty20 Cup.

Paul Nixon has been asked to keep wicket with Ian Bell also included.
