England Gets Its ODI Squad Ready For South Africa Tour
For the three-match ODI series in South Africa starting in January, England has picked a strong 14-member squad.
With Harry Brook receiving his first call-up to the ODI squad, Jofra Archer makes his long-awaited comeback to the England team. Ben Duckett recently led England to a 3-0 victory over Pakistan in a Test match, returning to the ODI squad for the opening time since 2016. Reece Topley has also been included after recovering well from the ankle injury that forced him to withdraw from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia earlier in 2022. A team with a number of well-known players and a strong pace attack with many all-rounders will be led by Jos Buttler. Along with Topley, Archer, and David Willey, who are all back, the team also consists of Olly Stone, David Willey, Sam Curran, and Chris Woakes.
The team’s spinners are Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid. Jonny Bairstow is still recovering from the injury he suffered playing golf before the T20 World Cup. The top-order choices still include Dawid Malan, Jason Roy, Phil Salt, Harry Brook, and Ben Duckett. In order to focus on the Test series against New Zealand in February, Joe Root will forego the current series.
Beginning on January 27, a three-match series is an essential practice for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, which will take place in India later in the year. GGBET provides attractive betting opportunities on every sports tournament, including the World Cup, that cricket followers love to play.

Jofra Archer Returns For England After Injury
After being selected for a squad of 14 for a scheduled three-match one-day international series in South Africa, Jofra Archer has been called back by England for the first time in over a year. Archer, a fast bowler from Sussex, was one of the heroes of England’s 2019 50-over World Cup victory, but elbow and back ailments have subsequently marred his career. The most recent of the 27-year-old Barbados-born quick’s 13 ODI appearances for England was in a Twenty20 match against India in Ahmedabad in March 2021, more than two years ago.
However, despite missing the entirety of the 2022 English season due to injury, Archer played for the second-string England Lions in a warm-up game against the Test team in Abu Dhabi last month before their 3-0 whitewash of Pakistan.
Six balls into the practice game, Zak Crawley was struck on the helmet with a bouncer from Archer.
Archer “is recuperating well from an elbow injury and is anticipated to return to international cricket in South Africa next month,” according to a statement released by the England and Wales Cricket Board on Thursday. Meanwhile, emerging sensation Harry Brook, who recently scored three outstanding test hundreds in Pakistan, has been selected for the first time in an ODI squad.
The three-game series will be contested over the course of six days, with the first two games taking place in Bloemfontein on January 27 and the third match in Kimberley on February 1.

Alice Capsey Of The Women’s Cricket Team Finds A Place In ICC Nominations For Women’s Emerging Of The Year
Alice Capsey made her England debut in international cricket at the age of 17. She accomplished it in style, scoring 119 runs at a strike rate of more than one run per ball in her first three T20I games. She struck two of those runs early on, consisting of a half-century off only 37 balls against South Africa, to ensure a strong start for her team’s home Commonwealth Games campaign.
During England’s home T20I series against India, Capsey continued to score runs and shortly after was called up for ODIs. For years to come, English cricket will be defined by the correct amount of aggression at the outset of an inning. Her off-spin work will undoubtedly be utilized more regularly as her career develops.
Although Capsey proved her experience of playing more than 100 games, many in her position would have given up under the pressure of being sent at No.3 in Birmingham. After Sophia Dunkley’s injury, Capsey entered the match at 10/1, but she blasted seven fours and a six to ensure the momentum switched in the hosts’ favor. England eventually prevailed by 26 runs. As a result of her effort, Capsey joined the legendary Sarah Taylor as the only player to score fifty runs for England while still a teenager.
