England Squad Player Profiles

England men’s Head Coach, Chris Silverwood, said: “The Royal London Series success against Pakistan showcased the exciting depth of talent we have developed in men’s white-ball cricket.

“We have selected a T20 squad that sees the return of many of our most experienced players after their period of isolation.

“Additionally, we have rewarded some of the players involved in the 50-over series win with selection which allows us to manage multi-format players as we prepare for the much-anticipated Test series against India.

“I would like to express my thanks to Ben Stokes and the players for their efforts over the last week, and the counties for their support in getting this series on.”
