England have named seven uncapped players in a 24-man training group ahead of their one-day series against Ireland.
Henry Brookes, Brydon Chase, Laurie Evans, Richard Gleeson, Sam Hain, Tom Helm and Phil Salt – all yet to play for England in either format – will join the group which will live and train at the Ageas Bowl.
All three of England’s ODIs against Ireland will take place in Southampton, on July 30, August 1 and August 4 respectively.
World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan and England assistant coach Paul Collingwood will lead the group, which Moeen Ali and Jonny Bairstow have been added to following their omissions from the Test squad.
Eoin Morgan (Middlesex) captain, Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jonathan Bairstow (Yorkshire), Tom Banton (Somerset), Sam Billings (Kent), Henry Brookes (Warwickshire), Brydon Carse (Durham), Tom Curran (Surrey), Liam Dawson (Hampshire), Ben Duckett (Nottinghamshire), Laurie Evans (Sussex), Richard Gleeson (Lancashire), Lewis Gregory (Somerset), Sam Hain (Warwickshire), Tom Helm (Middlesex), Liam Livingstone (Lancashire), Saqib Mahmood (Lancashire), Matthew Parkinson (Lancashire), Adil Rashid (Yorkshire), Jason Roy (Surrey), Phil Salt (Sussex), Reece Topley (Surrey), James Vince (Hampshire), David Willey (Yorkshire)
England national selector Ed Smith said: ‘Even with several multi-format players unavailable for the Ireland ODIs due to their Test commitments, there is real depth to England’s white ball playing talent.
‘Again, everyone at England cricket would like to thank all the county coaches and support staff who have helped these players in the lead up to the behind-closed-doors training camp.
‘We now look forward to hosting Ireland and continuing to develop our white ball strength in depth.’
Supporting Collingwood during the series will be Marcus Trescothick (batting coach), Jon Lewis (pace bowling coach), Claude Henderson (spin bowling coach) and James Foster (wicketkeeping coach).
