Moeen Ali named vice-captain for Ireland ODIs

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have named all-rounder Moeen Ali as vice-captain for their three-match ODI series against Ireland which begins on Thursday 30 July.

The team will be led by white-ball captain Eoin Morgan, but his usual deputy Jos Buttler will not play a part in the series due to his participation in the ongoing Test series against West Indies – the squads are being kept separate as part of the bio-security protocols for both series.

Moeen played his 100th ODI as part of England's successful ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign, though he was dropped from the side one match later due to a dip in form. He made a triumphant return to the side during their tour of South Africa, playing a key part in their two-wicket win in the third and final ODI to draw the series 1-1.

As part of his duties, Moeen will captain one side during the two intra-squad practice matches England are scheduled to play before naming their final squad for the series. These warm-up fixtures will be live-streamed by the ECB on their website on Tuesday 21 July and Friday 24 July, as well as an England Lions v Ireland fixture on Sunday 26 July.
