Stephen Parry
Parry is one of two uncapped players in England's World Cup squad.

England have announced their squads for next month's limited overs tour to the West Indies and the Twenty20 World Cup in Bangladesh as the controversy over Kevin Pietersen continues.

Worcestershire's Moeen Ali, Lancashire's Stephen Parry and Nottinghamshire's Harry Gurney are the new faces with Steven Finn, Danny Briggs and Boyd Rankin all left out from the 3-0 series defeat to Australia.

Gurney will only feature in the squad for the three one-day and three t20 matches in the West Indies, before the remaining 15 players travel to Bangladesh for the World Cup which starts on 16 March.

National selector James Whitake said: "We would like to congratulate Moeen Ali and Stephen Parry on their selection for the tour to the Caribbean and then to represent England in the ICC World Twenty20. It is an exciting opportunity for Moeen and Stephen and all the England players.

"Both Moeen and Stephen have been very consistent performers for Worcestershire and Lancashire and both counties and their coaching staffs, must take credit for their continued progress.

"Harry Gurney, under the guidance of the excellent coaches at Trent Bridge, has performed well for Nottinghamshire in limited overs cricket - showing good control with the white ball and, as a left arm quick, brings some variety to the tour party.

"England have won the ICC World Twenty20 before - in 2010 in the Caribbean - and this group has an exciting mix of youth and Twenty20 experience and I am sure with good preparation, desire and determination they will be able to produce an exciting brand of cricket."

England begin their World Cup campaign with group matches against New Zealand, Sri Lanka, South Africa and a qualifier before the knock-out stages commence.

Though England begin life without Pietersen in the West Indies and Bangladesh, the furore regarding the swift conclusion of his international career remains a major topic for discussion.

The England and Wales Cricket Board released a statement regarding Pietersen on Tuesday evening however many questions regarding the reasoning behind the decision to prematurely end his England career remain.
