LONDON - England have dropped James Anderson and Stuart Broad, the u. S. A. S all-time main Test wicket-takers, for their tour of the West Indies in March, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) stated on Tuesday.
Anderson, who has 640 Test wickets, and Broad, who has 537 scalps, is among eight gamers axed from the organization that featured in England s shambolic Ashes series in opposition to Australia.
England wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler has also been disregarded, even as there are first name-usafor Durham opener Alex Lees and Yorkshire seamer Matthew Fisher.
England squad: Joe Root (capt), Jonathan Bairstow, Zak Crawley, Matthew Fisher, Ben Foakes (wkt), Dan Lawrence, Jack Leach, Alex Lees, Saqib Mahmood, Craig Overton, Matthew Parkinson, Ollie Pope, Ollie Robinson, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood
