David Willey, England bowler seems much exhilarated on being selected in the ODI squad on Monday.
The 30-year-old Willey was also missed out in England’s World Cup squad last year; where England won the World Cup after defeating New Zealand on the basis of the boundary-countback rule.
The left-arm bowler has now been selected in the 14-member team for the three-match ODI series against Ireland. All the three ODIs will be played in a bio-secure environment at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton behind closed doors.
After Willey got the call up in England squad, he shared an old picture of him celebrating a wicket (expressing excitement).
“When you get selected for @englandcricket ODI squad* Buzzing,” Willey tweeted
This series will also see the promotion of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League. Introduced to convey the context to ODI cricket, the Super League will decide the stipulation for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 with the top seven teams inevitably booking their spot at the event in India.
The first ODI will be played on Thursday, between England and Ireland, that is-July 30.
