England has given Lancashire seamer Richard Gleeson, 34, his first T20I call-up for the forthcoming three-match series against India, which begins on July 7. Gleeson is presently the T20 Blast 2022’s second-highest wicket-taker, with 20 scalps in 12 games at an average of 16.10.

Former England Test captain Joe Root returns to the ODI fold after a year away, having last played a 50-overs game against Sri Lanka in July. As a result, Dawid Malan will not play in an ODI and will only play in the T20I series. Last month, Luke Wood and David Payne were also left out of England’s final ODI in the Netherlands.

The sides will be captained by Jos Buttler, who was appointed to be a white-ball skipper on Thursday after the retirement of Eoin Morgan. As a result, Harry Brook replaces the previous captain in both lineups as a like-for-like substitute. Meanwhile, spinner Adil Rashid has been permitted to skip both white-ball series to make the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. At the same time, legspinner Matthew Parkinson is set to make his white-ball debut after being nominated by both teams.

Because the T20I series begins just two days after the rescheduled fifth Test in Edgbaston, the white-ball regulars in the Test team have all been rested for the T20Is. Nonetheless, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow, and Joe Root will be back for the three-match ODI series.
