London: England named a 13-man squad for the only T20 match against India at Old Trafford on August 31 and a 14-man squad for the ODI series beginning from Spetember 3, on Friday.
While Kevin Pietersen has been rested, Durham's Ben Stokes has been brought in after he made his debut against Ireland on Thursday. The team for the T20 has two uncapped players in Somerset's Jos Buttler and Nottinghamshire's Alex Hales.
The focus on injecting young blood in the side is evident. "We're very excited to have included some bright young players in the form of Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler and Alex Hales, all of whom have proved themselves domestically and will now be looking to successfully take the step up to international level," said national selector Goeff Miller.
