The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) on Wednesday (May 30) announced their squad for the upcoming One-day Internationals against Australia and Scotland respectively.

Jos Buttler, who made his Test debut recently, post stint at Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL), has been rested for the One-off match against Scotland.

England recently lost to Pakistan in the first Test match at Lord’s by a humiliating margin of nine wickets. Buttler scored his maiden half-century on debut, along with Dominic Bess, during England’s second innings.

Thereby, making it a 13-man England squad where Sam Billings replaces the explosive wicketkeeper-batsman Buttler, on recommendations made by the captain and the coach.

Interestingly, this will be first time the English cricket team tours north in Scotland, since May 2014.

England, who are currently placed on the top of ICC’s ODI cricket ratings, defeated Australia down under in the five-match ODI series by the scoreline of 4-1.
