NED vs ENG: England Announce 14-Member ODI Squad For Netherlands Tour


The England Men’s selection panel has chosen a 14-man squad for the three-match ODI series against the Netherlands, which begins on June 17 in Amstelveen.

Uncapped players Luke Wood of Lancashire and David Payne of Gloucestershire have been chosen in the team. This will be Wood’s first call-up to the senior side, while Payne was part of ODIs against Pakistan last summer.

I’m Very Excited To Start The Job: Matthew Mott

Newly appointed Men’s white-ball head coach Mott said, “I’m very excited to be coaching a strong squad for my first series in charge. We have tremendous depth with a blend of youth and experience. We want to continue to play in an expressive style and let our players showcase their skills and firepower.

Luke Wood deserves his call-up. He has been consistent for Lancashire over the past 12 months and we have been monitoring his progression. If given a chance to play, I’m sure he will make most of his opportunity.  This is a historic occasion for the sport and the first time England has played The Netherlands in an ODI series. We can’t wait to head over to Amsterdam and put on a show for the thousands of fans travelling to support the team.

The three-match ODI series, which is part of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League, kicks off a busy summer for England Men, who will face India and South Africa in the Royal London Series later this summer.
