Kirtley to play in one-day series
Kirtley dismisses Sehwag
Kirtley has had some success in England colours
Seam bowler James Kirtley has been called up for England's winter one-day squad.

Kirtley will be part of the core of players aiming to win the triangular VB Series against Australia and Sri Lanka in December and January.

He joins the list of one-day specialist players who were selected for the competition in September.

Ian Blackwell, Paul Collingwood, Ronnie Irani, Nick Knight, Owais Shah, Jeremy Snape and Craig White, who has subsequently joined the Test squad, are all in the party.

The remainder of the 16-man squad will be made up of the players already in Australia competing for the Ashes.


I got married three weeks ago and I had planned a quiet winter at home
James Kirtley

England's full one-day squad will be named nearer the start of the series, which begins on Friday 13 December.

David Graveney, Chairman of Selectors, said, "With Darren Gough now unable to play in the VB Series, James has been selected for our one-day squad."

Kirtley said: "This will be my first tour of Australia and I am delighted to be a part of the squad.

"It gives me the opportunity to play against the some of the best players in the world on some of the best pitches in the world, so it is the ultimate test for me.

"It is sad that Goughie is unfit but it gives me a chance to show what I can do.

"I got married three weeks ago and I had planned a quiet winter at home, having been away for the last four winters. But this has now changed, it's been a great surprise."
