Jofra Archer, Joe Root rested for the upcoming ODI series against India

England have named their 14-man squad for the upcoming ODI series against India. Pacer Jofra Archer and batsman Joe Root will not be available for the ODI series due to various reasons. Root has been rested for the one-day series after taking part in grueling Test series against India. On the other hand, Jofra Archer has suffered from injury and will not be picked for the ODI series after an elbow injury.

Leg-spinner Mark Parkinson has earned his recall to the limited-overs squad after 12 months. Archer will be playing back to the United Kingdom for further examination on his elbow injury. Jofra Archer aggravated his injury on his right elbow during the five-match T20I series against India. He will also miss the early stages of the Indian Premier League for Rajasthan Royals.

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) medical staff will assess the extent of injury on Archer’s right blow and formulate rehabilitation plan for the quick bowlers. The 25-year old will certainly miss this initial phase of Indian Premier League due to elbow injury.

Last year, Leg-spinner Matt Parkinson made his limited-overs debut for England in South Africa. Uncapped batsman Liam Livingstone and pacer Reece Topley have been included in England’s ODI squad. The duo were not picked for England’s last bilateral one-day series against England played at home.

Livingstone and Parkinson were also part of the England T20I squad. On the other hand, Jake Ball, Dawid Malan and Chris Jordan, have been named in the ODI squad as reserve players. The likes of Chris Jordan and Dawid Malan were part of England’s playing XI in the recently concluded T20I series played against India.
