After a below-average run in the World Cup 2023, the English team have declared their white-ball squads for their upcoming tour to the West Indies. The upcoming series will be offering a crucial platform for England to assess their plans in order to prepare themselves for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 which is set to take place in the West Indies and USA.
The forthcoming tour is set to take place between the 3rd and 21st of December which will include three ODIs and five T20Is. Jos Buttler will continue his duties as a skipper for both squads.
The likes of Gus Atkinson, Harry Brook, Brydon Carse, Sam Curran, and Liam Livingstone are ready to join Buttler in the team. The first two ODIs will be organised in Antigua, while Barbados will take care of the final ODI and the first T20I. The following T20Is will be taking place in Grenada and Trinidad. The giant West Indies on the other hand missed out on the chance to take part in the ongoing World Cup. The last time they played a series was back in August when they hosted India and ended up losing the ODI series 2-1 but securing a 3-2 win in the T20I series.
ODI squad: Jos Buttler (captain), Rehan Ahmed, Gus Atkinson, Harry Brook, Brydon Carse, Zak Crawley, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Tom Hartley, Will Jacks, Liam Livingstone, Ollie Pope, Phil Salt, Josh Tongue, John Turner.
T20 Squad: Jos Buttler (captain), Rehan Ahmed, Moeen Ali, Gus Atkinson, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Will Jacks, Liam Livingstone, Tymal Mills, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Josh Tongue, Reece Topley, John Turner, Chris Woakes.
