Kieswetter gets England call

Posted By: Staff

London, Feb 22 (ANI): Somerset wicketkeeper Craig Kieswetter is all set to be fast-tracked into the England team after being selected for the one-day squad for the tour of Bangladesh.

The wicketkeeper-batsman, 22, has been in destructive form for the England Lions on their current tour of the United Arab Emirates.

Kieswetter smashed a blistering 66-ball 81 against the senior team in their Twenty20 warm-up on Wednesday.

A former South African Under-19, Kieswetter recently completed his four-year wait to qualify to play for England, The Sun reports.

England will take on Bangladesh in three one-dayers, before the start of the two-Test series. (ANI)
