Swann To Be Rested During
Limited Overs Series

Featured News | 28th November 2012

Nottinghamshire quartet Stuart Broad, Alex Hales, Michael Lumb and Samit Patel have been included in the England T20 squad to face India in back to back fixtures on 20 and 22 December.

Patel and Broad are also included in the ODI squad for January’s five-match series although Broad will be rested to allow James Anderson to take part in the first two matches.

Graeme Swann has been left out of both squads with National Selector Geoff Miller expressing a wish to manage the workloads of leading players.

“We are constantly looking to manage the workload of players as effectively as possible and this winter is no different so there are number of players who are being rested for parts of the winter programme,” said Miller.

“This will enable them to take part in fitness and conditioning programmes in preparation for a busy 2013.

“We know that playing limited overs cricket in India can be challenging but the T20 and ODI series provide an excellent opportunity for these players to show that they have learnt valuable lessons from the last ODI series against India and improved as players in subcontinent conditions.

“We have selected squads containing experienced international players alongside younger players who have impressed playing for England Lions and the England Performance Programme recently and who deserve an opportunity to establish themselves in the England side.“
