England v Ireland: Jason Roy in Test squad for first time

Sophie Ecclestone helped England to victory in a warm-up game against Australia A

Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler - stars of the World Cup success - have also been granted leave until the pre-Ashes camp ahead of the August 1 opener.

Roy racked up 443 runs in England's triumphant 50-overs World Cup campaign but is not a regular top-order batsman for Surrey in red-ball cricket.

Fast bowlers Mark Wood and Jofra Archer were not considered for selection because both players have suffered side strains.

Seamer Mark Wood has been ruled out for four to six weeks with the left side strain sustained in the World Cup final.

Archer, who has yet to play in a Test match but bowled the super over in the World Cup final against New Zealand, is due to fly to Barbados on Wednesday afternoon.

Sam Curran hit his second half-century of the match as England Lions secured a draw in their four-day encounter with Australia A at Canterbury. Joe Denly could come in at number three followed by Joe Root.

South Korean Foreign Ministry spokesperson Kim In-chul said, "The date is unilaterally and arbitrarily set by Japan". Growth worries have pushed central banks around the world to adopt a more dovish stance, following the U.S.

England chairman of selectors Ed Smith confirmed Roy would make his debut against Ireland, telling Sky Sports: "We have total confidence he will be able to adapt to red ball cricket".

England's leading Test wicket-taker James Anderson is also included despite injuring his calf earlier in July.

After Eoin Morgan captained England's World Cup team, it is Joe Root who resumed his role as Test skipper against Ireland.

All-rounder Lewis Gregory makes his first appearance in a Test squad after producing several eye-catching performances for Somerset and England Lions.

He picked up 44 wickets at an average of 13.88 and is now captaining the England Lions in their match against Australia XI in Canterbury. Australia are the current holders of the Ashes as they won it in the backyard of England in 2015 and then retained the trophy in Australia in 2017.A team will be entitled to earn two points on winning an ODI or T20I. Stone has recovered from back injury recently. The speedster will travel to Barbados, his place of birth, for a short break before returning for the Ashes.

He came into contention a year ago and has been rewarded soon after England's maiden World Cup triumph.
