Despite forcing his way into England's limited overs squads for the end of the summer, he says the call-up was 'a bit unexpected' but he is now looking forward to a 'great thrill'.

Carberry played one Test match in Bangladesh in 2010, and is keen to add to that tally following a strong season at the Ageas Bowl.
