England Squad & Schedule for Champions Trophy 2017 Announced

England Squad & Schedule for Champions Trophy 2017: Fast bowler Mark Wood has made a comeback to the ODI side for the Champions Trophy. The Durham pacer last played for England in an ODI series last year against Pakistan and was out of the team since then due to an injury. Still, the selectors decided to give him a go as they see a future prospect in him.

Mark Wood being included in the team meant that Steven Finn was dropped from the side as other than Wood, Jake Ball who was given the nod. The first ever England player to take a fifer on ODI debut i.e. Jake Ball was also included on the side.

Other than these, the squad included no surprise as most of the players from the last series against India have been retained in the team.

Though there are some changes in the squad for the series against Ireland series as the team will miss out on services of Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes and Ben Stokes during the preparatory series before the tournament, these three players have been allowed by their cricket board to play Indian Premier League. But Jason Roy, Eoin Morgan and Sam Billings will return for the Ireland series as they have not been allowed to play league and have to participate in the preparatory series.

Eoin Morgan will continue to lead the side in his second 50 over ICC tournament.

England will play two-match ODI series against Ireland before taking on South Africa in the three-match ODIs series to prepare for the tournament. The selectors have named the same squad for the South Africa series and Champions Trophy but made few changes for Ireland series, which will be played before.
