    England name squads for Ireland, South Africa and Champions Trophy

    Mark Wood included for the first time since September and David Willey returns following a shoulder injury.

    England selectors have announced a 14-man squad for the Royal London ODI Series against Ireland and a 15-man squad for the Royal London ODI series against South Africa and the Champions Trophy.

    Durham seamer Mark Wood returns for the first time since September and will be looking to add to his 11 caps. Yorkshire all-rounder David Willey is also included having missed the West Indies series in March with a shoulder injury.

    Three players – Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes – have not been considered for selection for the Ireland series due to their ongoing Indian Premier League commitments. They return to England on 15 May.

    Northamptonshire batsman Ben Duckett and Middlesex seamer Steven Finn have both been included in the squad to face Ireland.

    National selector, James Whitaker, said: “We have made encouraging progress over the past 18 months in white ball cricket and the squads selected reflects consistency and gives options across all disciplines. 

    “It is pleasing that Mark Wood and David Willey have returned to full fitness. They add variety and quality to our bowling strengths and David’s ability as an attacking batsman is also an important element for us.

    “As we build-up to the ICC Champions Trophy in June, matches against Ireland and South Africa are very important in their own right as we aim to win both series.”

    The players selected in the Ireland squad will report to Bristol on Thursday 4 May.
