England squad named for India ODI tour

Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler

Middlesex’s Eoin Morgan will captain England’s One-Day International (ODI) and IT20 squads during the tour of India, which starts next month.

The 30-year-old is joined in both squads by Nottinghamshire’s top-order batsman Alex Hales. Both players return to the international set-up for the first time since the end of the English domestic season.

Yorkshire’s prolific batsman Joe Root returns to the squad having been rested for England’s ODI series victory over Bangladesh in October.

Ben Duckett, Steven Finn and James Vince all miss out on selection as the white ball side continues to progress under Morgan and head coach Trevor Bayliss, which has seen England win nine of their last 12 ODIs.

Selectors have also announced a 15-man IT20 squad for the India series.

England will play three ODIs and three IT20s during the three-week tour with the ODI opener taking place on Sunday 15 January in Pune.
