MOEEN Ali has been named in England's ODI squad for the series against the West Indies in the Caribbean.
The Worcestershire all-rounder is part of an unchanged 14-strong squad - the same set of players who finished the recent ODI Series in India.
It will be a return to where it all started international-wise for Moeen almost three years ago.
He made his full England debut in the February 2014 ODI series in the West Indies when he opened alongside Michael Lumb and scored 44, 10 and 55.
James Whitaker, the national selector, said: “There is a huge emphasis on white ball cricket during the first half of 2017, as we continue our preparation ahead of this summer’s ICC Champions Trophy tournament in England.
“We felt it was important to keep faith with the squad that competed during the recent tour of India.
"The current group of players are making excellent progress under the captaincy of Eoin Morgan and head coach Trevor Bayliss and the tour of the Caribbean will enable the team to test themselves in different conditions against a competitive side in the West Indies.”
England will arrive in St. Kitts and Nevis on Wednesday February 22 before playing two warm-up matches at Warner Park on Saturday February 25 and Monday February 27.
