London [UK], July 17 (ANI): England's Jason Roy is set to make his Test debut as he found a spot in the squad that will compete against Ireland for a one-off Test, starting July 24.
Apart from Roy, Lewis Gregory will also make a Test debut as he found a spot in the 13-man squad named by the England National Cricket Selectors on Wednesday.
Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, who displayed a brilliant form during England's maiden World Cup title, have been given rest for the match. Moreover, Jofra Archer and Mark Wood also did not find a spot as both are suffering from a left side strain.
However, Archer's impeccable performance in the premier tournament has awarded him an increment contract by the England Cricket Board (ECB) for the next 12 months.
Squad: Joe Root (c), Moeen Ali, Jimmy Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Lewis Gregory, Jack Leach, Jason Roy, Olly Stone, Chris Woakes. (ANI)
