Gurney In England
Squad To Face Scotland
Featured News | 1st May 2014
Nottinghamshire bowler Harry Gurney has been included in the England squad to face Scotland in next Thursday's One Day International in Aberdeen.
Gurney has been on the England radar since being called upon to provide left-arm variation in England's pre-Ashes net practice in Australia after a solid second season at Trent Bridge.
"I was delighted to get the call and being involved in the England setup is beyond my expectations," said Gurney.
"I've moved to a Club that puts out fantastic teams in all formats and my focus now is to make the playing eleven and to show what I can do for England.
"My previous call was with the previous regime so it's pleasing to see that the change in structure at the top hasn't had too much of an effect on me personally.
"I managed to pick up wickets that week and he's seen something that he likes and hopefully i'll get an opportunity to justify the faith that he has shown in me.
"I need to focus on preparing well for this fixture and making good use of the next few days."
Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell attended his first selection meeting since being appointed to the panel last week.
