According to Sky Sports, the squad for the face-off against West Indies to reclaim the Wisden trophy will be named after a practice match scheduled to be played in early July.

The training group will meet in Southampton on June 23 and remain at Hampshire’s headquarters as they prepare for a three-day intra-squad practice match on July 1-3.

Talking about the training group, national selector Ed Smith said, “It is a great opportunity for that group of players to join up with an England training group and to rub shoulders with the best players in the country and the established players in the Test team.”

Moeen Ali included

The selectors also included Moeen Ali, who has not played Test cricket for England since August 2019 and went on a self-imposed break from the longest form after being dropped during the Ashes .

National selector Smith expressed joy as Ali made himself available for all formats.

“In a number of conversations over the winter, and also more recently, Moeen has indicated he wants to be considered for selection in all formats and he’s available for selection,” Smith was quoted by Sky Sports.

“Moeen is a valued member of the England set-up and across formats he’s been a significant contributor,” added Smith.
