England Call Up Jason Roy For India T20
England have named a 14-man squad for the one-off Twenty20 International against India which includes uncapped Surrey opener Jason Roy.
In Stuart Broad's absence due to a knee injury, Eoin Morgan will lead the side at Edgbaston on 7th September.
Roy helped Surrey reach the semi-finals of the NatWest T20 Blast, scoring 677 runs including nine half-centuries and also featured for England Lions earlier this summer.
Taylor has played a key role in Nottinghamshire's progress to the semi-finals of the Royal London One-Day Cup semi-finals and will play in their game against Durham on 6th September and join up with the squad.
He also scored 272 runs in the NatWest T20 Blast as Nottinghamshire reached the quarter-finals.
Bopara was left out of the ODI squad while Bresnan has not played for England since the ICC World Twenty20 competition although he was included in the squad to play Sri Lanka earlier this summer.
Ian Bell and Michael Carberry have been dropped from that squad with fast bowler Steven Finn also included.
"This one off NatWest International T20 provides us with an opportunity to look at players who have impressed recently in domestic cricket and gives them a chance to test themselves on the international stage against high quality opposition," National Selector James Whitaker said.
"I would like to wish Eoin Morgan and his squad all the very best against a strong Indian side."
England T20I squad: Eoin Morgan (captain), Moeen Ali, Ravi Bopara, Tim Bresnan, Jos Buttler, Steven Finn, Harry Gurney, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Joe Root, Jason Roy, James Taylor, James Tredwell, Chris Woakes
