No Jos Buttler, Panesar: England Name 3 Uncapped Players for 1st Test vs SL
England's ODI star Jos Buttler has not been named in the 12-man squad for the 1st Test against Sri Lanka starting June 12th at Lord's.
Butler, who earlier this week made headlines for being controversially run out by Lankan spinner Sachithra Senanayake, will have to wait for his Test opportunity in spite of being in smashing form in the ODIs.
Alastair Cook's squad includes three players uncapped at Test level - 24-year-old batsman Sam Robson, 25-year-old pacer Chris Jordan who has played 13 ODIs and seven T20s since making his England debut last September, and 26-year-old all-rounder Moeen Ali who made his ODI and T20 debuts earlier this year against West Indies.
