England have released Samit Patel and Jonny Bairstow from their NatWest Series squad to play for their counties in tonight’s Friends Life t20 matches.

Patel will, therefore, travel to Nottingham to take on Durham, and Bairstow will journey a little further north for Yorkshire’s Roses match at Headingley Carnegie.

All-rounder Patel, batsman Bairstow and fast bowler Jade Dernbach were the three players not selected to face Australia at Lord’s in the first NatWest one-day international today.

Patel and Bairstow are due to report back to London tomorrow, where England will face Australia again at the Kia Oval on Sunday.
