Broad defends England selection
- From the section Cricket
England Twenty20 captain Stuart Broad defends the selection for the one-day series against Australia, saying they have a "hugely talented squad".
Broad, along with Alastair Cook, James Anderson, Ian Bell and Graeme Swann are being rested after helping England win the Ashes this summer, with the return series against Australia starting in November.
The uncapped quartet of Michael Carberry, Chris Jordan, Jamie Overton and Boyd Rankin are included, and Broad believes these players need to gain experience as they look ahead to the 2015 World Cup.
England play two Twenty20 matches against Australia on 29 and 31 August before travelling to Ireland to play an ODI on 3 September.
