England Retain Same Squad

England have retained the same squad of 12 players for the second test against Bangladesh starting on June 3rd.

Jon Lewis makes his way into the England ODI squad for the up-coming Natwest Series against Bangladesh and Australia. Lewis has been included in the ODI squad at the expense of James Anderson who the selectors feel needs to continue his rehabilitation at county level while the ageless Darren Gough holds his place after impressing in the county season to date.

Alex Wharf who was apart of the England ODI squad who toured South Africa back in January/February was not considered due to a side strain.

Test squad Marcus Trescothick, Andrew Strauss, Michael Vaughan (capt), Ian Bell, Graham Thorpe, Andrew Flintoff, Geraint Jones (wk), Gareth Batty, Simon Jones, Matthew Hoggard, Stephen Harmison, Jon Lewis.
