In England Twenty20 Squad
Featured News | 19th August 2013
Nottinghamshire trio Alex Hales, Michael Lumb and Stuart Broad have been named in a 13-man England squad to face Australia in two NatWest Twenty20 Internationals at The Emirates ICG and The Ageas Bowl.
Michael Carberry is the only member of the squad yet to play a T20 for England. The 32 year old Hampshire batsman averaged 56 in this season’s Friends Life t20 competition including an unbeaten century against Lancashire in the quarter finals.
“With only eight international T20 matches until the ICC World T20 next April this NatWest series is an important chance for players to show they are capable of performing well at this level," said National Selector Geoff Miller.
"The two matches will also allow Ashley Giles and Stuart Broad an opportunity to look at a number of different options. This squad combines players with plenty of international experience with players who have impressed at domestic level and who deserve an opportunity to test themselves in an international environment against what will no doubt be a strong Australian side.”
