In the aftermath of their campaign at the ODI World Cup, England swiftly revealed their ODI and T20I squads for the imminent multi-format series against the West Indies.
Set to engage in three ODIs and culminate the tour with five T20Is, England’s squads showcased notable changes compared to the lineup that contested in the ODI World Cup 2023. Among the alterations, only six players from the World Cup roster secured spots in the ODI squad for the West Indies series. Notably, Jos Buttler retained his role as the captain in both formats.
The familiar faces joining Buttler in the ODI squad included Gus Atkinson, Harry Brook, Brydon Carse, Sam Curran, and Liam Livingstone, all of whom contributed to England’s World Cup journey. Adding intrigue to the mix, three players yet to earn an ODI cap—Ollie Pope, John Turner, and Josh Tongue—were included in the squad.
Shifting focus to the T20I squad, experienced all-rounder Moeen Ali secured his position, while Dawid Malan found himself omitted from both formats.
After their premature exit in the ODI World Cup group stage, the Buttler-led England squad aims for a significant performance boost. The upcoming series against the West Indies serves as an opportunity for reflection and improvement, as England seeks to emerge victorious in the multi-format battle starting with the first ODI on December 3 and the initial T20I on December 12.
