England have chosen Nottinghamshire batsman James Taylor to captain their one-day side for the very first time against Ireland at Malahide in Dublin on 8 May.

In what will be their first 50-over match since suffering the humiliation of a group stage exit at the 2015 World Cup, the visitors have announced a youthful squad that includes five previously uncapped players in Hampshire's James Vince, Kent wicketkeeper Sam Billings, Surrey's Zafar Ansari, Lewis Gregory of Somerset and Northamptonshire's David Willey.

Surrey batsman Jason Roy, who made his T20 debut against India in September 2014, has also been named in an 11-man party that is set to be further bolstered after England formally announce their lineup for the third test against the West Indies in Bridgetown, Barbados on 1 May.

"To be given the opportunity to lead your country is a huge honour," Taylor, awarded an increment contract in February, said in a press release issued by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

"There are still some very experienced and talented cricketers in that team who I'd have been delighted to have as my captain, so it is a privilege and one I'm going to relish.

"It's going to be brilliant leading an England team in a one-day international. We know it will be a tough game against Ireland and this match provides a great chance for us all to show we can play a huge role in limited overs cricket in years to come."

Eoin Morgan, who replaced Alastair Cook as regular one-day captain less than two months before England embarked upon their disastrous tour down under, is unavailable for selection after being given clearance by the ECB to feature for the entire Indian Premier League campaign with Sunrisers Hyderabad.

While there has clearly and rightfully been an emphasis placed on younger players as coach Peter Moores seeks to prove his worth in all formats in a time of upheaval at the ECB, 30-year-old Tim Bresnan has been recalled to the international arena after a near 14-month absence.

"We are expecting a very competitive match against a talented Ireland side and this fixture gives us a great opportunity to look at players who have performed well in county cricket and for the Lions," national selector James Whitaker said.

"We are starting to identify players we believe can make a real impact in limited overs cricket in the next four years as we build towards the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2019 and these players have a huge opportunity to stake a claim for further opportunities this summer.

"James Taylor has played with many of these players with England and England Lions and his experiences leading Notts Outlaws make him an ideal captain to lead a young and dynamic side with Eoin Morgan currently in India at the IPL."
