England Cricket team have announced a 16-man squad for next month’s ODI series against Sri Lanka commencing from October 10.

Meanwhile, Olly Stone, a 24-year-old seamer with genuine pace, earned a debut call. His inclusion comes as cover for Liam Plunkett, who misses the first three games of the tour for his wedding.

Stone has been in impressive form in domestic cricket, taking 34 wickets at an average of just 11.61 in Division Two of the County Championship. His speed as much as anything is sure to have caught the attention of the selectors.

Sam Curran, who has had an outstanding Test series against India, has found a place in the ODI squad. He will be along with his brother Tom Curran in the England squad. Sam has previously played in just a solitary ODI for England which came against Australia earlier this summer. If the pair plays together it will be the first time this century that England would have fielded two brothers in the same team.
