England selection for Kent spinner
KENT spinner James Tredwell has been called up to the England squad.
With England 2-0 up in the three-match one-day series against the West Indies, the selectors have called up three new bowlers and are planning to rest Graeme Swann, Stuart Broad and Tim Bresnan.
Tredwell, 30, who has played five one-day internationals, is joined by Surrey’s Stuart Meaker and Warwickshire’s Chris Woakes.
He was at his miserly best on Sunday in the victory over Surrey, squeezing the run-rate and conceding just 17 runs off his four overs.
National selector Geoff Miller said: “The fact that we have already won the NatWest series means we are able to take the opportunity to rest three players ahead of next week’s series against Australia and take a closer look at players who are likely to feature in our limited overs planning going forward.”
