Cricket: Borthwick, Stokes win England calls

Have your say

DURHAM starlets Scott Borthwick and Ben Stokes today won call-ups to the England one-day squad for Thursday’s Dublin clash with Ireland.

Dublin-born batsman Eoin Morgan will captain a largely inexperienced team, with skipper Alastair Cook rested along with Kevin Pietersen, Ian Bell, Graeme Swann and James Anderson.

Spinner Borthwick has enjoyed another fine campaign in Durham’s push for the County Championship title, while all-rounder Stokes recently returned from a long-term injury to great success.
