Kent spinner James Tredwell named in England squad to face Sri Lanka in a t20 and ODI series

13 May 2014
by Alex Hoad

Kent spinner James Tredwell has been named in the England squad to face Sri Lanka in a t20 and ODI series later this month.

The 32-year-old - who claimed 4-41 in England’s 39-run ODI warm-up win over Scotland on Friday - was included in Peter Moores’ first competitive squad in his second stint as coach on Tuesday morning.

He is one of 13 players chosen for the NatWest International t20 against ICC World t20 champions Sri Lanka on Tuesday at the Kia Oval and the 14-man party for the first three matches of a five-match Royal London ODI Series against the tourists beginning on Thursday, May 22, at the same ground.

Eoin Morgan will captain the t20 side in the absence of Stuart Broad, while 33-year-old former Kent batsman Michael Carberry has been called-up for the first time.

Alastair Cook’s ODI squad also includes Carberry.

National Selector, James Whitaker, said: “Playing the World t20 Champions in front of a home crowd is a hugely exciting opportunity for this squad.  

“We are entering an important period of 50-over cricket with a World Cup less than nine months away and this series against a skilful Sri Lankan side offers a chance to regain some momentum and for players to demonstrate the skill and passion we will need if we are to be serious contenders next year in Australia and New Zealand.”

The squad for the final two ODIs of the series will be named later this month.
