Bresnan & Bairstow in England ODI and T20 squads

— 7 February 2012

England selectors today named Tim Bresnan and Jonny Bairstow in the England ODI squad for the forthcoming series against Pakistan beginning in Abu Dhabi on Monday 13 February and the England squad for the T20 series beginning in Dubai on Thursday 23 February.

The 16-man ODI squad  sees the inclusion of Danny Briggs (Hampshire) and Jos Buttler (Somerset) for the first time.


Buttler made his international T20 debut last summer against India but is yet to play for England in the 50 over format.  Both players have spent the winter with the England Performance Programme in India and with England Lions in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The squad will face England Lions on Friday 10 February in Abu Dhabi in preparation for the series against Pakistan.


Stuart Broad will captain a 15-man T20 squad that includes Nottinghamshire’s Alex Hales for the three match T20 series against Pakistan. Tim Bresnan’s inclusion in both squads is subject to a fitness assessment during the preparation period as he continues his recovery following an elbow operation.


National Selector, Geoff Miller, said: “We have selected two squads that include both experienced international players and younger players who have performed strongly for England Lions in recent months and deserve an opportunity to further test themselves against quality opposition. Playing against Pakistan in the UAE will be challenging but it is important that these players continue to develop their skills so that we are able to make strides in limited overs cricket particularly on the subcontinent.”
