​ Moeen Named In England Squad For India Odi Series

Moeen Ali has been included in the England squad for the forthcoming Royal London ODI Series against India.

The Worcestershire all-rounder is part of a 14 strong squad for the three match series.

Moeen was one of England’s star performers in the five match ODI Series against Australia which ended earlier this week.

He ended as England’s joint leading wicket-taker with 12 alongside Adil Rashid.

It included his career best ODI performance with the ball of 4-46 at Old Trafford.

The 31-year-old – Worcestershire Rapids official Vitality Blast captain this summer – also ended with the best economy rate of any England bowler in the series, conceding just 5.09 runs per over.

The ODI series gets underway at Trent Bridge on July 12, continues at Lord’s on July 14 and ends at Emerald Headingley on July 17.
