Durham Four Selected For 30 man ICC Trophy Squad

England’s 30-man ICC Champions Trophy squad comprises five players yet to be capped at One-Day International level, including Michael Carberry (Hampshire), Graham Onions (Durham), Samit Patel (Nottinghamshire), Darren Pattinson (Nottinghamshire) and James Tredwell (Kent).

Worcestershire seamer Simon Jones has also been named in the preliminary squad of 30 after last playing for England in the successful 2005 Ashes campaign.

Nottinghamshire is represented more than any other county with five players named, including Grimsby–born former Victorian seamer Darren Pattinson.

“Although the 30-man ICC Champions Trophy squad is extensive it contains some exceptional talent and a strong mix of youth and experience”, added Miller.

“The ICC Champions Trophy will give us the chance to test our One-Day International side against the best in the world and I know the players will be looking forward to the challenge of improving our current ODI ranking. We will continue to monitor performance in the lead up to narrowing the squad to a final number of 15.”

 England’s ICC Champions Trophy squad will be reduced to 15 by August 11. The ICC Champions Trophy commences on September 11 with England’s opening match against Sri Lanka to be played at Karachi on September 14.
