England Test Squad Announcement.
This morning the England management have announced their Test squad to tour Cricketweb Land in the coming month. The tour, which commences next week with a three day match against Blue next week, will be a tough test for the touring party which contains four uncapped players. Hampshire batsman Michael Carberry and Durham seamer Mark Davies have no previous International experience but it is not the first time they have been involved in an England squad. The other uncapped Test players are promising spin bowling allrounder Adil Rashid and keeper-batsman Steve Davies, both of whom have represented England in limited overs matches. The only real noticeable omission is that of seamer James Anderson who is currently undergoing treatment on a troublesome knee injury. Experienced bowler Stephen Harmison was once again left out of the squad with the selectors belived to have worried about how he would fare in Test matches overseas.
