Man of the Match in the World Twenty 20 final Craig Kieswetter has been selected as Englandâ€™s only keeper for the upcoming 50 over games against Scotland and the Aussies.
The Somerset â€˜keeper was one of the finds of the tournament in the Caribbean and has already figured for the England 50 over side in Bangladesh over the winter. In those 3 games Kieswetter scored over 100 runs at an average of 43, including a highest score of 107 (his maiden ODI century).
Also recalled to the squad is Ian Bell, Paul Collingwood and Stuart Broad. The latter pair were rested for the recent test series against Bangladesh. Alistair Cook has been left out, presumably as Kieswetter will open the batting. Another star of England success in the West Indies, Michael Yardy also gets selected for the 50 over format and no doubt his spin bowling, along with Graeme Swann will be key during those middle overs.
Englandâ€™s first ODI of the summer will take place a week on Saturday against Scotland in Edinburgh before the opening game against Australia at the Rose Bowl on the 22nd.
