Moeen Ali named in England's training squad for West Indies Test series

Moeen Ali has moved closer to a Test return after being named in the 30-man England training group that will travel to the Ageas Bowl next Tuesday and begin preparations for the three-match series against West Indies. This training period will allow the England management to run the rule over a number of new faces before the behind-closed-doors series, with Jamie Overton, James Bracey, Dan Lawrence, Ollie Robinson and Amar Virdi in the setup for the first time. Saqib Mahmood, Matt Parkinson and Lewis Gregory have been in Test squads previously but take the total of uncapped players in the group to eight – all of whom have a golden chance to impress the head coach, Chris Silverwood, and the captain, Joe Root.
