11:45am Tuesday 27th August 2013 in Sport
SOMERSET bowler Jamie Overton has been named in England’s ODI squad for forthcoming matches against Ireland and Australia.
The 19-year-old seamer has been picked in the 14-man squad following impressive performances for both Somerset and the England Lions this season.
England take on Ireland in Dublin on September 3, before beginning a five-match series against Australia on September 6 in Leeds.
Overton is one of five uncapped players included in the squad and he is also joined by Somerset teammate Jos Buttler, who retains his place.
The pair could now miss Somerset’s YB40 semi-final against Nottinghamshire.
