England name uncapped Gurney in one-day squad

LONDON. (Reuters) – New England director of cricket Peter Moores named uncapped fast bowler Harry Gurney yesterday in the squad for this month’s one-day international against Scotland.

Test captain Alastair Cook will lead the side and batsman Joe Root returns for the match in Aberdeen on May 9 after missing the Twenty20 World Cup due to a thumb injury.

“The start of the international summer is always incredibly exciting for everyone involved in England cricket and it has been pleasing to see so many players in good form early on this season,” national selector James Whitaker said in an England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) statement.
