LONDON (Sporting Alert) — Moeen Ali of Worcestershire and Lancashire’s Stephen Parry, both uncapped, have been named in the England squad to tour the West Indies, as well as for the ICC World Twenty20 to be played in Bangladesh.

Nottinghamshire’s left arm fast bowler Harry Gurney is also selected in the squad and is available for the Caribbean One Day Internationals and Twenty20 fixtures.

“We would like to congratulate Moeen Ali and Stephen Parry on their selection for the tour to the Caribbean and then to represent England in the ICC World Twenty20,” National Selector James Whitaker said on Thursday.

“It is an exciting opportunity for Moeen and Stephen and all the England players.

“Both Moeen and Stephen have been very consistent performers for Worcestershire and Lancashire and both counties and their coaching staffs must take credit for their continued progress.

“Harry Gurney, under the guidance of the excellent coaches at Trent Bridge, has performed well for Nottinghamshire in limited overs cricket – showing good control with the white ball and, as a left arm quick, brings some variety to the tour party.

“England have won the ICC World Twenty20 before – in 2010 in the Caribbean – and this group has an exciting mix of youth and Twenty20 experience and I am sure with good preparation, desire and determination they will be able to produce an exciting brand of cricket.”

In the absence of regular captain Alastair Cook, who is rested until the limited-overs matches against Sri Lanka in this country next May, fast bowler Stuart Broad will captain the squads in the Caribbean, as well as the ICC World Twenty20, with Eoin Morgan is vice-captain for both tours.
