David Willey, Reece Topley recalled to England ODI squad

England's left-arm pace duo David Willey and Reece Topley has earned a call-up to the ODI squad for the three-match series against Ireland this week.

The pair were named in the 14-man contingent captained by World Cup-winning skipper Eoin Morgan.

Willey missed out on England's triumphant World Cup campaign after being omitted from the final list of players for the competition to make way for exciting quick Jofra Archer.

On the other hand, Topley last played international cricket in 2016 as back injury troubles prevented him from being a regular member of the team.

The Sussex star's tall physical stature and ability to generate steep pace offers plenty of depth to England's fast bowling department that also boasts Saqib Mahmood and Tom Curran in the mix.

England have rested several of their key players including the likes of Ben Stokes, Joe Root, Jos Buttler and Archer in order to give them an adequate break ahead of the Pakistan Tests due to begin on August 5.

Experienced white-ball campaigners such as Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy and Adil Rashid strengthen the composition of the squad.

Joe Denly, 34, was dropped from England's Test side midway through the West Indies Test series and has now been drafted into their one-day "bubble" at Hampshire’s Ageas Bowl.

Three additional reserves - Richard Gleeson, Lewis Gregory and Liam Livingstone - are part of the team as well.
