Aaron Hardie, Matt Short, Jhye Richardson, and Nathan Ellis return to the squad. Lance Morris has been included in his first ODI squad.

NSP men’s Chair of Selectors George Bailey said: “It is a little over 12 months until the Champions Trophy and further opportunities for the likes of Aaron Hardie, Matt Short, Jhye Richardson, and Nathan Ellis will be valuable both to our ongoing improvement as a team and also further their personal experiences in ODI cricket.

“The squad strikes a balance between players continuing to make their mark on international cricket, playing alongside some of our most experienced players with an eye to the future in this format.”
