Bresnan and Carberry return to face Sri Lanka - Cricket News
Tim Bresnan and Michael Carberry were added to the squad that recently defeated Scotland by 39 runs in Aberdeen in a rain affected ODI.

England selectors today announced a 13-man squad for the T20 against current ICC World T20 champions Sri Lanka onTuesday 20 May at the Kia Oval and a 14-man squad for the first three matches in the five match One-Day Series against Sri Lanka beginning on Thursday 22 May at The Oval.

Eoin Morgan will captain the T20 side in the absence of Stuart Broad who is undergoing a period of rehabilitation on his right knee. Morgan will lead a side containing two uncapped players, 27 year old Nottinghamshire left arm seamer Harry Gurney and 33 year old Hampshire batsman Michael Carberry.

Alastair Cook's ODI squad sees the addition of Yorkshire all rounder Tim Bresnan and batsman Michael Carberry from the squad that recently defeated Scotland by 39 runs in Aberdeen in a rain affected ODI.

National Selector, James Whitaker, said: "Playing the World T20 Champions in front of a home crowd is a hugely exciting opportunity for this squad. With Stuart currently unavailable we have chosen Eoin to lead the side and I would like to wish him and the rest of the squad all the very best.

"We are entering an important period of 50-over cricket with a World Cup less than nine months away and this series against a skilful Sri Lankan side offers a chance to regain some momentum and for players to demonstrate the skill and passion we will need if we are to be serious contenders next year in Australia and New Zealand."
