London: Moeen Ali and Jonny Bairstow were included in a 24-man England training squad announced on Thursday for the three-match one-day international series at Rose Bowl, Southampton to Ireland.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Bairstow and off-spinning all-rounder Moeen were left out of the squad for the ongoing first Test against the West Indies.

The series will be played behind closed doors, starts on July 30, with remaining matches on August 1 and 4.
