England Name White-Ball Squads For India Series; Jos Buttler Captain


England have named their squad for the upcoming white-ball series against India. The hosts will take them on in 3 matches T20Is as well as the same number of ODIs. England are one of the best T20I teams currently and they are expected to push India really hard. They recently beat the Netherlands in the 3-match ODI series where they also scored world record 498 run total on board. Coming back to the ODIs, they would also play three games against India and could be one of the contenders for the 2023 ODI World Cup in India.

Talking about the squad, the team will be led by Jos Buttler. It will also have the likes of Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone in attendance. The England Cricket Board, however, has rested Adil Rashid who would visit Mecca for religious purpose.

The first of the three match T20I series begins on July 7 which will be a day-nighter. This will be followed by two more T20Is on July 9 and July 10. This will be followed by three match ODI series which begins on July 12.
