“I am sure with good preparation, desire and determination they will be able to produce an exciting brand of cricket”

England have included Worcestershire batsman Moeen Ali and Lancashire spinner Stephen Parry in their squad for the World Twenty20, which gets underway in Bangladesh next month.

Both players, along with uncapped Nottinghamshire left-arm pace bowler Harry Gurney, have also been included in the limited overs squad for the national team’s upcoming tour of the West Indies.

“Both Moeen and Stephen have been very consistent performers for Worcestershire and Lancashire and both counties and their coaching staffs, must take credit for their continued progress,” national selector James Whitaker said. “This group has an exciting mix of youth and Twenty20 experience and I am sure with good preparation, desire and determination they will be able to produce an exciting brand of cricket.”

Meanwhile, Parry was ecstatic to have been included in England’s World Twenty20 squad, and told the Manchester Evening News: “It goes without saying that I was absolutely delighted to have received the call from James Whitaker. I am still in a bit of shock. It’s always an ambition to play for your country and being in the squad brings that dream a step closer to reality.”
