Aussie World Cup killer wins Ashes berth

Ben Stokes inadvertently picks up six runs via overthrows

Williamson's actions after defeat in the World Cup final earned him several nominations.

Swashbuckling opener Jason Roy has been named, for the first time, in England's 13-member Test squad for the match against Ireland which will be played at Lord's from July 24.

It will be the 28-year-old's first first-class match since last November when he batted at number three for the England Lions against Pakistan A in Abu Dhabi, making 59 off 73 balls.

England's leading wicket-taker James Anderson was included, despite picking up a calf injury this month.

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

English bowler Lewis Gregory, who will make his England Test debut against Ireland, claimed that receiving the call for the match left him speechless.

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. Gregory was part of the England Lions and was competing against Australia A for a Test match which ended in a draw on July 17. Stone has recovered from back injury recently.

Sam Curran believes England's historic World Cup triumph will inspire the Ashes team as attention turns towards their attempt to regain the urn.

Kiwi-born Ben Stokes is among nominations for the award; along with gutsy Black Caps captain Kane Williamson, NewsTalk ZB host Simon Barnett, former league star Manu Vatuvei and one of the heroes of the Christchurch mosque attacks, Abdul Aziz.

Meanwhile, a squad of 16 players will attend a pre-Ashes training camp this weekend at St George's Park, the Football Association's national football centre in Burton-Upon-Trent.

Archer - uncapped at Test level - is not included in either squad and will travel to Barbados for a short break before returning ahead of the Ashes, for which he remains in contention.

England squad in full for pre-Ashes camp: Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Lewis Gregory, Jack Leach, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Olly Stone, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.
