England name 17-man Ashes squad for tour of Australia
The Independent says England have named a 17-man squad for this winter’s Ashes tour, with head coach Chris Silverwood leaning on familiar faces for the trip Down Under.
Silverwood and captain Joe Root are unable to call on a full-strength group due to the continued hiatus of star all-rounder Ben Stokes and injuries to Jofra Archer, Olly Stone and Sam Curran but fears over players opting out due to concerns over Australia’s travel restrictions have not materialised.
Following successful discussions with Cricket Australia over arrangements for families and quarantine there have been no opt-outs.
