Sussex duo named in England squad for World T20

The Argus: Chris Jordan has been selected for both the tour of West Indies and the World T20 Chris Jordan has been selected for both the tour of West Indies and the World T20

Sussex duo Luke Wright and Chris Jordan have been named in the England squads for the forthcoming tour of the West Indies and the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh.

Wright was expected to be included in the 15-man party for the World T20 having played in the previous two tournaments, including helping England lift the trophy in 2010.

Jordan's call-up was a little more surprising having made his one and only appearance for England in the format in the final game of the T20 series in Australia last month.

The Sussex seamer impressed in the ODIs in Australia this winter and also in the limited overs series against the Aussies at the end of last summer.

England will play three ODIs and three T20Is in the West Indies next month before heading to Bangladesh prior to their opening game against New Zealand on March 22.

Also included in the England squad for the World T20 are uncapped Moeen Ali and Stephen Parry while Nottinghamshire seamer Harry Gurney will also feature in the earlier series in the West Indies.

England squad for West Indies tour: Broad, Morgan, Ali, Bopara, Bresnan, Buttler, Dernbach, Gurney, Hales, Jordan, Lumb, Parry, Root, Stokes, Tredwell, Wright.
