Davies added to Edgbaston party
Surrey wicketkeeper Steven Davies has been called into England’s squad for the third Investec Test against West Indies as cover for Matt Prior, who has an eye infection.
Davies, who turns 26 later this month, has played in eight one-day internationals and five Twenty20s for England, and also served as back-up to Prior during the winter tours of the United Arab Emirates and Sri Lanka.
The left-hander will travel up to Edgbaston this evening after the opening day of Surrey’s LV= County Championship match against Sussex at Horsham.
Should Prior be passed fit, Davies will be released from the squad in the morning.
