England name Yardy and Lumb in squad

The England Cricket Board has named two new uncapped players, Micheal Yardy and Michael Lumb for the T20 World Cup this month in the Caribbean islands.

It is surprising to hear the name of Craig Kieswetter in place of the experienced campaigner Matt Prior.

Michael Lumb brought back Rajasthan team from crisis by opening the innings. The 30 year old English player has been given a chance to prove his worth.

Michael Yardy who led the Susex Sharks with his all round bowling and batting performance too has been given a go to his international career.

Meanwhile, Ravi Bopara who is having a good run in the Indian Premier League will make a comeback in the T20 World Cup.

Graeme Swann and James Tredwell will lead the spin attack while James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Ajmal Shahzad, Tim Bresnan and Ryan Sidebottom.
