Matthew Potts gets his first call up to the England ODI squad after making his Test debut this summer

Durham dressmaker Matthew Potts is called up to the ODI squad for the first time after making an impressive debut in England’s four Test matches earlier this summer.

Yorkshire spinner Adil Rashid returns to both teams after missing the series against India after being cleared by the ECB to make the Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca.

Jonathan Bairstow is included in the T20 squad after being rested for the Indian series.

England Men’s Test captain Ben Stokes will sit out the Vitality T20I series and The Hundred competition in order to manage his workload.

The ODI series begins at Durham on Tuesday, just two days after England’s three-game decider with India. Further ODIs will then follow at Old Trafford on Friday July 22 and Headingley on Sunday July 24.

The three-match T20I series, part of both teams’ preparation for the World Cup later this year, begins in Bristol on Wednesday July 27, before the teams meet in Cardiff the following day.

The final limited overs game between the sides will be played at Southampton at the Ageas Bowl on Sunday July 31, before playing a three-game Test series in August and September.
