Cricket 19: GODII – Squad Announcement

Your England squad for the Global One-Day Invitational Round Six match against Nepal at Headingley is as follows:

Dawid Malan

Liam Livingstone

Ben Stokes

Joe Root

Sam Curran

Liam Dawson

Jonny Bairstow (Captain/Wicketkeeper)

Tom Curran

Chris Woakes

Lewis Gregory

Matthew Carter

Ben Foakes

I’m delighted to announce that Jonny Bairstow will captain the side for the first time on his home ground. Congratulations also to Matthew Carter who comes into the squad for the first time and Lewis Gregory who returns to the national set-up after a long absence and will hope to win his first cap.

Captain Jos Buttler as well as all-rounder Moeen Ali have been rested from this fixture. Both players have been an integral part of the ODI and Test side of late. With one more ODI to follow before returning to the Test format for the business end of the North Western Hemisphere Test Championship, the decision has been made to rest said players as we have done with the likes of Joe Root, Sam Curran and Chris Woakes in recent matches. Jofra Archer also drops out of the side that won convincingly in Namibia.
